Why EasyBib?

EasyBib can save you time and effort, by collecting your citations and helping you cite sources.

We always recommend that students check in with their instructors to see if they would prefer that they not use EasyBib.  Remember:  EasyBib cannot take the place of good second-checking.  Please check the style guide your instructor prefers--It may be the EasyBib and the style guide will differ.  Your instructor always has the final say on what the authoritative citation should be!
