How to Generate a Citation in EBSCO

In your results list, click on the title of the article you want to cite.

When the article information displays, click on the CITE icon in the toolbar on the right.

A new pop-up window will appear, containing citations for the article in seven different formats.

NOTE: There are two different "Chicago/Turabian" formats; most DBU professors prefer the "Humanities" version.

Highlight the citation in the format you need, then copy and paste it into your document.

ALWAYS double-check your citations! Visit the Writing Center or download their citation packets to make sure your citations are formatted correctly.
