EasyBib Academic Edition at a glance

EasyBib Academic Edition is a customized version of EasyBib.com that gives your library visibility on the Web with your students. It incorporates your library's branding, includes additional citation styles, provides Web site evaluation tools and more. It builds on your current investment with WorldCat Local, WorldCat Local "quick start" or WorldCat.org.

Don't worry—EasyBib Academic Edition is available to all.

“My interest in EasyBib stems from my users' interest in it: I've been getting feedback from students that the amount of time and effort required to learn and use some other citation tools is greater than students need, or want, to invest. They find EasyBib to be easier to use.”

Cheryl LaGuardia, Harvard research librarian (from Library Journal's E-Views blog)
