This month, Hein Online has added the McGill guide to its citation tool. This means that in any Hein Online document, users can press the “Cite” button-located above the table of contents-which will then provide the document’s citation in multiple citation formats, including the McGill guide.
The citation is not perfect however. A McGill citation for one document looked like this:
Daniel Perlin, “Chat Reference: A Must Have for Academic L Libraries.” (2010) 35:1 Can L Libr Rev 20
The title of the document was not cited in full form as it should be in McGill, so you still need to ensure its accuracy before you input the citation in research papers. However, it is certainly a much-needed help in citing sources.
