Citation generators provide online forms to create a citation in various formats such as MLA, APA, Chicago, and more. The researcher types the bibliographic data into the form and the site generates a citation in the format requested.
Some citation generators display the citation on the screen, but don't save the citation. Others sites offer some citation management services, such as saving your citations, and organizing files, folders, and citations as you perform your research.
Remember! YOU are responsible for the accuracy of your citations. Citation Generators are convenient to use, but are rarely accurate.
