Quick & Easy Bibliographies

Now that you have collected and organized your citations, it's time to create your bibliography. It's so easy, it's crazy.

Drag and drop

The easiest way to create a bibliography is to simply drag and drop the selected citation(s) onto a word document, google doc, or any other word processor. 

If you want to change the citation style output for the drag and drop feature, go to the Gear Icon --> Preferences --> Export --> and select which citation style you want from the "Default Output Format."
