Bibliographies and Citations made easy with EasyBib Add-on in Google Docs.

I wonder if the days of teaching our students about proper MLA or APA citations for bibliographies are gone? I've gone through years of post-secondary education and tons of classes and professors who grilled me top to bottom about my citations and not doing them correctly. I might be wrong but it certainly felt like educators had multiple levels of how picky they wanted to be about citations and whether they were done correctly to a period. That was part of the problem. The other problem was me. To this day I still can't tell you exactly (precisely) how to make a proper MLA or APA citation. Every few years the expectations according the American Psychological Association (APA) and Modern Language Association (MLA) change. Why bother with constantly updating ourselves or trying to remember where the period of comma goes when we can just use EasyBib?

Aside from the strange avatar talking, this 1 min video (done well) shows you exactly how you can add and use the EasyBib add-on in Google Docs. The beauty of this is how painless it is for the educator and student. Simply writing in the title, ISBN or keywords in the search section will pull up all the possible sources that you may be looking for. Odds are you'll find the right one quickly. Click "Add Bibliography to Doc" and you're done. The citation shows up in the bottom of your document. You can cite websites, journal articles or books

Here's the best part: it will automatically arrange your bibliography in alphabetical order! BOOYAA! What else do you want? You tell me.
