I spent many years in academia, so proper source citations are important to me. I love my database software because it automatically builds footnotes, linked to sources, based on form entries; however, I’ve been a bit frustrated because the citation form wasn’t available for photos, documents, etc.
I’ve recently discovered EasyBib, which creates MLA citations for free. Again, one simply fills in the form and the citation is created. I can then copy the citation and paste it into the source field for photos, etc. in TNG and voila! a proper citation.
Here are a few citations created today:
