StyleEase uses WorldCat data to help automate citations for students

“The partnership provides quick search access to the world’s library collection via WorldCat. The data is available through the WorldCat Search API as a part of the WorldShare Platform. The WorldShare platform gives flexible, open access to the shared library data of the cooperative, so that students can discover, cite and create lists for information in e-books, books, chapters, magazines, newspapers, websites, journals, films and more. One of the citation services’ advantages is that it lets users view the citation format as they enter their information, so they learn how to reference materials as they go. StyleEase uses WorldCat data to quickly fill citation information. It then formats and compiles a bibliography according to the guidelines of whichever style manual the user selects. Manual entry is also an option.” (via OCLC)
