There are all kinds of online citation generators.  Why do I need to know how to cite my sources?

Online citation generators (like those listed to the right of this box) are useful to create a ROUGH DRAFT of your citation.  Any time you rely on a computer to generate a citation for you, you still need to double-check it. Errors appear 9 times out of 10. Often the citation generators miscapitalize or mispunctuate citations, and they often do not indent.  You are responsible for making sure that your citation is correct.
