New Citation App
Try a new smart phone app called Quick Cite.
The Chronicle for Higher Education says, "Quick Cite, which costs 99 cents and is available for both iPhones and Android-based phones, uses the camera on a smartphone to scan the bar code on the back of a book. It then e-mails you a bibliography-ready citation in one of four popular styles—APA, MLA, Chigaco, or IEEE."
A citation is the information needed to locate the reference (article, book, website or other) you are interested in reading. Citations are also used to help readers of your papers go to the information you used. The citations are found on the References page at the end of a research/term paper.
