This is a great, free citation maker with some helpful shortcuts. For a web site, simply click the "Website" tab and enter the URL (I like to cut and paste it to avoid typing mistakes). It creates a pretty complete citation that you can fill in with details if needed. You can cut and paste the completed citation into your works cited. It includes templates for a variety of sources, including databases, digital images, interviews, etc.


Another great citation maker.
