Writing and Citing

How reliable are the "Cite" tools provided by databases?

The free citation helpers in EBSCO Collection databases, ABI/INFORM, and Google Scholar are a great help for getting you started on your bibliographic references, but they sometimes contain errors. Common mistakes to look for (and correct) are ... capitalization errors, missing information, and improper line spacing and indention. Always check the database-provided citations carefully!
