EasyBib is an information literacy platform that provides citation, note taking, and research tools for students. Using EasyBib's tools, kids can input reference information and have it instantly transformed into any one of the current citation styles (MLA, CMS, etc.). The Citation Guides not only show students what information needs to be included for book, website, or TV show references, but also  where they can find all those details. Students can also save and share papers, create notes, and confirm their source materials all in one place. For teachers who want students to spend more time focused on the meat of their papers and less time nit-picking commas and capital letters on the citations page, EasyBib could be a great classroom resource.

For educators, there are a couple of very comprehensive lesson plans on the basics of citation, a blog written by information literacy experts, and professional development webinars. If a school purchases the School or Library Edition, they'll have access to an educator platform that allows teachers to create online classrooms and ways to track student progress. EasyBib's lesson plans would fit in really well to a week or two devoted to research study.  Students in the Internet age may not know what counts as plagiarism; EasyBib clarifies all the rules for them.

Teacher Review

EasyBib is an app that takes the wonderful free citation creator website and repackages it as an app.  You can keep track of your bibliography and email it to yourself and it is even easier with the addon.  It is very easy to use on an iPad because you can save to the app and access later if you are logged in. Three styles are included on the site: MLA, APA, and Chicago/Turabian. You have to pay to use all the styles.
Create accurate MLA, APA, and Chicago style citations in seconds by scanning a book bar code or by typing the name of a book. Build and manage your works cited. Once done, email your citations and then export your citations to’s popular bibliography management service.
