How I Use It
Citation Machine is a great shortcut for students writing research papers or otherwise citing sources for their work. Gone are the days of sifting through an MLA tome to find the correct format for writing a citation. This tool allows you to search for sources and automatically generate citations in a format of your choosing. It sidesteps one of the most pedantic and laborious aspects of research to allow students more time on the stuff that matters - evaluating their sources and thinking critically about incorporating them into their research.
I like this tool so much I use it myself in my own research. I find citation formatting to be a waste of time and a pedagogical bore. This tool allows us to spend more time on the stuff that matters.
