Automatically Cite Internet Resources... What!?!

Citelighter allows you to easily save, organize, and automatically cite Internet resources.

How it Works:
Once you register, you download the Citelighter toolbar. It can be added to multiple browsers like
Chrome, Firefox and Safari. At the time this article was written, it was not available yet on Internet Explorer. You then create a new project and enter the title of your paper. Next you begin your research by going to trusted sites on the Web. When you find a fact or quote that you want to include in your paper, you highlight it using your mouse and press the capture button. This will automatically be stored in your Citelighter cloud for later reference. When you capture information from a Webpage, Citelighter will grab most of the bibliographic information. Click the "See Citation" button to verify or change the information.  You can also add offline sources (books, journals, etc.) manually.
