Clear and very user friendly. Makes it clear by filtering through the various citation methods and breaking it down step by step. Very functional for all levels.

Very clear structure will be valuable to students at all levels who are confused by the construction of a citation.  The in-text feature takes this beyond OWL, which, although more comprehensive, requires more patience.

I like the functionality of inputing the ISBN to get the reference information.  Overall, it's easy to use.  User interface could probably be improved, but then again, this is a free site used more for ad-placement than anything else.
