Easybib.com

General Description

EasyBib is just that – an easy way to create a bibliography and works cited document. EasyBib will do the work for you as long as you input all the information correctly. It will even correctly format your works cited page quickly and accurately. And it even exports a Word document when you are ready to turn in your research paper.

What’s not to love?

Pros/Affordances

  • simple to use
  • quickly and accurately exports a correctly formatted document
  • takes the guess work out of correct bibs
  • offers citation help for a variety of sources

Cons/Constraints

  • MLA is free but APA and Chicago need a paid subscription
  • students rely on the ease of EasyBib
  • does not tell you if you are inputting the correct information in the fields

Final Recommendation

While it is a great resource, I would make sure to spend a day or two on what types of information students will use to fill in the fields. It is important that students have a good grasp of what information goes where before they start plugging in random information and not making sense of what this is generating.
