Otto Bib and Son of Citation

I want to share two web sites with the readers of Essays Made Easy: Otto Bib allows writers to credit their sources on their essays' "Works Cited" page easily. Simply visit the site, select an option (MLA, APA, Chicago/Turabian, BibTeX, or Wikipedia) and then enter the ISBN of the book that you want to cite.  Otto Bib does the rest for you! 

Another web site, Son of Citation Machine, is usefuil for books that are not in the Otto Bib database and for other types of sources, such as web pages, periodicals, and films. Simply fill in the fields with the infomation requested, press the "Submit" button, and viola Son of Citation provides the correct "Works Vited" entry (or in-text citation, if that's whay you're looking for).

Give both a try; you'll be glad you did!
