Citelighter is an intuitive online research platform that enables students and professionals to quickly find and record facts, automatically cite sources, and write better papers/documents. Citelighter is also incredibly useful for individuals doing more basic (non-academic) research like preparing to purchase a car, planning a trip, preparing for an interview.
Getting started with Citelighter is easy. Sign up for an account at www.citelighter.com and quickly install the Firefox toolbar. Once you have the toolbar installed you can surf the net for the relevant information that you want to add to your paper or research project. You then highlight the information that you want to cite and press the "Capture" button on the Citelighter toolbar. All of the bibliographic info will be captured and stored for you automatically. You can continue to gather your information this way, either from the Internet or from other sources like Google Books, or even offline journals. Citelighter lets you keep all your research information in one centralized location, all while automatically formatting your bibliographic information in MLA, APA or Chicago citation style.
