Even though BibMe may be very helpful in automating the process of creating and formatting citations, it’s still important that students understand how to cite sources “the old-fashioned way.” Knowing the rules and guidelines that each style guide outlines is an important part of writing a paper and compiling a bibliography. Using our citation guides, you can look up the formatting guidelines and rules for all the source types we support for the MLA, APA and Chicago/Turabian style guides.
