Did you know that several of our databases come with citation tools that format article citations in several different styles? Citation creation is available in various formats, including ALA, APA, AMA, Chicago/Turabian, etc. Look for the CITE or EXPORT function next to the article record in most databases to create a citation for your reference list. Use these shortcuts with caution though; always check them with the Library's citation style guides for accuracy.
Many databases also have personal folders in which you can permanently save your searches and articles, as well as set up alerts for new issues of your favorite journals.
Look for these sign-in features in all EBSCO, JSTOR, and other databases.
