Citation management

A guide to saving citations and creating bibliographies from the State Library catalogue.

Save a citation for a single record

All records in the State Library catalogue include the option to save a citation for that item.

To save a citation for any record, click the title to open the record in the full detail view and select Citation from the Save as menu.

Select Citation from Save As menu in catalogue record

This will open up a panel with the option to select from one of four preconfigured citation styles: either APA (6th or 7th edition), Chicago/Turabian (16th edition), Harvard (Author-Date) or MLA (7th or 8th editions) (refer to the Citation styles tab for information on each of these options). Simply select the style you require and click the 'Copy the citation to clipboard' button; you can then paste the citation into the application of your choice.

Remember to check the resulting citation for accuracy before using in your work!
