In the example above:

Remember that different types of resources (books, anthologies, websites, etc.) have slightly different formats.


A useful tool is Noodletools.
There is a free Express version which is very helpful, but if you use their subscription version, you can automatically transfer your data to a properly formatted Works Cited page.
