Finding citation information

Citation information or bibliographic details for a document can be accessed in several ways in the eHRAF databases. The most efficient way to find, copy/paste or save pre-formatted citation information is by using the Cite button located throughout eHRAF World Cultures. You can also find document-level metadata (e.g. author’s name, publication date, etc.) on a document’s Publication Information page.

You can quickly obtain a pre-formatted bibliographic citation anywhere you see the format_quote Cite button in eHRAF World Cultures.

This button can be found in the following locations:

  1. At the bottom of the Document Overview box on the Browse Documents page

  2. At the bottom of the right sidebar on all document (Full Context) pages and the Publication Information page for a document.

  3. On the right in Culture Summaries

Clicking on format_quote Cite in any location will bring up a menu to select the reference style that you prefer (e.g. MLA, ALA, Harvard, Chicago). Simply copy the style example that you would like to use and paste it into your document.

Alternatively, you can export the reference to your chosen citation management software by clicking on the appropriate link (e.g. EndNote, RefMan or BibTex). Note that additional citation managers such as Zotero or Mendeley should give you an option to convert and save citations from any of the three formats provided. Refer to your citation manager’s documentation for assistance.
