A Great Citation Tool For Your Schools

Citing your work is very important. Citing your work properly is even more important. Thanks to my colleague Karen Kasic,  I found out about this great website that can assist students to cite properly in either MLA or APA format.

The site can be located at the following link:  OERB  The OERB or Ontario Educational Resource Bank is available to Ministry of Ontario Students and Teachers.



The site will give you the option of wether you would like the details about citing read to you or not.


Once the site demonstrates why you should cite materials and how you can build your own citations using MLA and APA for different media:



Students can easily fill out the online forms:



and then copy and paste the citation into their work.

Thanks for the great suggestion Doug!
The link to the Citation Builder in this blog will only work if you are already logged into the OERB, and have clicked on the "Search 2.0" icon.
You can also find the Citation Builder resource (along with over 20 000 other resources in the OERB) by searching for it, either by typing in "Citation Builder" or by searching for it by it's ELO number, which is ELO1198120

If you don't know your userid and password for the OERB, ask your school or schoolboard. If they do not know, contact e-Learning Ontario at elo@ontario.ca

Thanks Urs for the valuable information on how to access the OERB. I wasn't thinking of the HOME access!
