Citation and Research Tools

There are many software applications available to help you format citations and bibliographies or maintain a list of references for a research project. They may be available as:

  • Web sites or web-applications/tools
  • Network or PC-based software programs
  • Browser extensions.

If you use any of these tools, be sure to review the results carefully and compare to the recommendations of your style manual whenever in doubt. If you are writing for a class or for publication, your instructor or publisher is always the final authority to consult for determining which general style to use, as well as for determining the proper format for a specific citation.


Tools @ UNT​


The UNT Libraries make this reference management tool freely available to UNT students, faculty, and staff. It allows you to quickly gather, categorize, and store references as well as generate citations and bibliographies for research papers.

  • You must set up a free RefWorks account to use the software using your UNT email address
  • More information available in our RefWorks Guide

Citation Generators

A number of subscribed and managed systems provided by the UNT Libraries can generate a citation for you. A few examples:

  • Online Articles Search: The search on the library's homepage allows you to "save items" by clicking the folder icon in the upper-right corner of a result. The Saved folder (upper right of the screen) will provide you with citations in APA, AMA, MLA, Uniform, Chicago/Turabian, and Harvard Styles. Citations can be e-mailed, printed, copied, or exported to RefWorks, EndNote, or BibTex.
  • Electronic Resources: Many databases we subscribe to offer citation generation, saving, and/or export functions.
  • UNT Digital LibraryItems in the UNT Digital Libraries & Portal to Texas History will generate a simple citation. See "Citations, Rights, Re-Use" in the left-hand column of an item's description.
