Create the Perfect Title Page with BibMe!

Title pages can be tricky business. There are so many options to consider—where does the class name go? What’s a running head and subtitle? What order do they go in?

We’re excited to announce that you can now create the perfect title page on BibMe!

With BibMe’s new title page feature, students can create a perfect title page in minutes.

How can you access the title page tool?

It’s simple! Go to BibMe.org and click on “Title Page Generator” in the top navigation and you’ll be brought to the page where you fill out all of the information about your paper.

Update: Add Parenthetical Citations!

We have a new update to share with you all today. All of our users can now add parenthetical citations to their bibliographies. You can find the parenthetical citation link in your bibliography.

First, you start off at creating your citation using the correct source. When you add the citation to the bibliography, you will see it load in your bibliography section. The parenthetical citation link is located next to the “Copy & Paste” link. If this is your first experience with seeing this section, you can also edit the citation, copy and paste it into your processor of choice or delete the citation.

When you click on the “Parenthetical” link, your screen will load with options on what information you want to add to the parenthetical citation. After adding the Contributor, Title and Pages, click “Copy to Clipboard” and add the parenthetical citation into your document.
