A neighbor girl just came by to ask about MLA citation. We use Chicago and APA in this house so I couldn't help her in a definitive way.

What's the best online resource to help her?

Thanks.

It's retarded nitpicky stuff such as citation styles that are giving me gray hair while in school.

I'm learnding accounting, not snobbery damnit!

To answer your question though, I don't even remember how to do any of the methods. Just search citation generator in google. She types her reference material in the box, and it spits out a properly formatted citation into word for you. I've never seen anyone take the time to remember the actual format.

I use this- I mostly do APA though for my college papers.

If it's just for the citation page Word 2007 has a bibliography/citationmaker that you just enter info into. BTW I prefer Chicago myself.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. The paper is due tomorrow, so she'll be burning the midnight oil and hopefully learning to plan ahead. I wish I would have learned that myself.

I still use OWL as a reference from time to time and I've been out of school a while now.

OWL was the handout I was given in college.

We used APA at the CC I went to, but Easybib works as advertised.
