Gale Virtual Reference Citation Tool


The Gale Virtual Reference Library (GVRL)provides help with MLA and APA citations as well as the ability to export-to-RefWorks under its Citation Tools tab.

If you simply want a citation in either MLA 7 or APA 6, make your choice and click save. Open the file that's created and copy-and-paste the citation. Note that the Document URL is also included on a separate line. You may or may not be required to include the URL; check with your instructor.

In addition to the two basic citation styles, GVRL also lets you export bibliographic data to citation management programs like RefWorks. To use this option, select the Third Party Software that you use--RefWorks, if you have set up an account with CBU. A window like the one to the left will open. If RefWorks does not launch automatically, click the RefWorks button at the bottom of the window and log in to your account. After that, the data will load automatically.

RefWorks is available to all students, faculty, staff, and alumni of Christian Brothers University.
