Other citation styles:

Learn more about citation managers to keep track of your citations and create in-text citations, endnotes and bibliographies.

Citation Tools

ZoteroBib helps you build a bibliography instantly from any computer or device, without creating an account or installing any software, 

if you need to reuse sources across multiple projects or build a shared research library, we recommend using Zotero instead.

Zotero (pronounced "zoh-TAIR-oh") is free citation software that collects, manages, and cites research sources. It automatically updates itself periodically to work with new online sources and new bibliographic styles.

Novanet LiveHelp

An online chat-based reference service provided by Novanet libraries.

MSVU LibChat

This service will run 11AM - 3PM Monday to Thursday. When the service is running,  you will be able to chat directly with MSVU Library staff. You can get help with things like library account login issues, citation resources, simple research help questions, and more.

Because the service is aimed at providing quick service to basic questions, you may be referred for a research help appointment if it is determined that more in-depth help is required.
