A WorldCat record includes the ability to generate bibliographic citations for the displayed work. To copy or export a citation, click Cite/Export within the WorldCat item details. A pop-up window provides citations for the most common citation styles. (Make sure you disable or override any pop-up blocking toolbars or software when clicking the link.) Highlight and copy the citation you need and paste it into a word-processor document or e-mail. Make sure that none of the citation's text formatting has been lost in the process.
These citation styles are available:
|APA||Publication manual of the American Psychological Association (American Psychological Association)|
|Chicago||The Chicago Manual of Style (University of Chicago Press)|
|Harvard||The bluebook: a uniform system of Citation (Harvard Law Review Association)|
|MLA||MLA Style Manual and Guide to Scholarly Publishing (Modern Language Association)|
|Turabian||A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses, and Dissertations (Turabian, Kate L.)|
Note: Some special characters and/or text formatting may be lost or altered when copied into word processing programs or Web-based applications such as e-mail services.
You can also export a citation for the individual item in popular formats such as RefWorks, EndNote and EasyBib.
Before you begin: You must have an account with RefWorks. If you select RefWorks and are not already logged into the RefWorks Web site, WorldCat will launch a new browser window and take you to the site logon page. (If a new window does not open, make sure it is not being blocked by your browser or toolbar software.) Once you have logged in, RefWorks will accept the exported file and display a "Import completed" confirmation.
To export to the RefWorks research management Web site:
Select the Export to RefWorks link.
Before you begin: You must have EndNote® installed on your computer. If you select EndNote and have the software installed on your computer, the application should automatically launch and accept the exported file.
To export to EndNote bibliographic software:
Select the Export to EndNote link.
Note: If you do not have EndNote installed, a File Download window opens asking if you want to save the file or find a program online to open it. If you choose to save, a file with the extension .ris is provided.
To export to the EasyBib citation management Web site:
Select the Export to EasyBib link.
