How to Get Citations

In USearch, you can retrieve citations directly from the item record. These are available in a variety of citation styles, including Chicago/Turabian and APA. Follow these steps to learn how.

1. Initiate a search in USearch.

2. Click on the ellipsis next to an item of interest.

3. Select 'Get Citation'. Choose the desired citation style.

4. Select 'Copy the Citation to the Clipboard'.

5. Paste the citation to the desired location, like a document or email. If you use a citation management software like EndNote or Zotero, you may want to try the 'Export Bibtex', 'EndNote', or 'EndNote Web' options to the left of the 'Get Citation' icon. For more information about citation management software, see our the Endnote and Zotero page.

*Remember to check your citations for accuracy, as these citations are machine-generated and may contain errors, like spacing, extra characters, and/or missing information.
