Back in high school I deplored writing bibliographies. All the formatting rules drove me up the wall and I never understood the need for a standard of referencing books.
How I wish OttoBib was available back then.
This handy little browser app takes the ISBN [International Standard Book Numbers] of the books you want to reference and changes that into one of three formats, MLA, APA, or Chicago/Turabian. That’s it, instant references.
OttoBib accepts both ISBN-10 and ISBN-13, and will also spit out a permalink of the results so you don’t have to enter the numbers again.
