Google Docs Citation Tool

Google Docs now includes a citation tool which lets you add your citations into your document very easily. Go to Tools > Citations. Select the citation style you need (MLA or APA only -- Chicago Notes & Bibliography is not included) then click + Add citation source. You have to enter your sources; there is no way to import from a citation creator. Once you have added a source, you can create an in-text citation, and eventually create your bibliography.
