The Power and Perils of Citation Generators

There are numerous tools to quickly create citations in most styles--many of these tools are embedded in library databases or exist within stand-alone bibliographic citation managers like Refworks or Easybib.  Machine-generated citations can make life easier, but they can often be formatted, capitalized, or punctuated incorrectly or inadequately.  ALWAYS check machine-generated citations with the official and updated Chicago Manual of Style or other authoritative sources for accurate information concerning punctuation, formatting, and completeness of the citation.  

If you rely on machines to generate citations, know that your grade is not made by a machine.
