Each source used in a research paper or project must be correctly documented (cited).  These tools will help you to format your sources into a bibliography using styles preferred by most instructors (either MLA or APA). Please note that these Web sites are not affiliated with CSM, therefore, we will not be able to resolve any difficulties you  encounter when using these tools.  There are other styles not covered here.  Always check with your instructor regarding the style to follow.
