Generate Citations with RefME

desktopRefME is a free web and mobile tool to generate citations, reference lists and bibliographies. With REfME you can:

  • Create references with one click
  • Reference in many styles including MLA, APA, and Harvard
  • Scan book and journal barcodes to generate a reference (Get the app in the App Store or Google Play)
  • Store your references in the cloud

Although this tool may make referencing easy, it shouldn’t replace knowing how to create references ‘by hand.’ We have many resources for you on our Additional Resources page under Citing Sources.
