Different subjects require different citation formats. Be sure to check with your instructor to find out what format to use for your project. Citation generators will help you insert the necessary information needed for various types of citations. They offer lots of help in interpreting what information is needed for a citation. While they will correctly format and punctuate your information, they will not correct your spelling or capitalization errors. Be sure to check the capitalization rules for titles used in citations.
Use these online guides to help you throughout the writing process.

Not sure what the difference is between paraphrasing, summarizing and quoting?
Paraphrasing: Using your own words, restate "what the original source is saying in roughly the same length as the original." from The Curious Writer
Summarizing: A summary is "much shorter that the original source. If your aim is to summarize a long passage, look for the author's most important ideas." from The Curious Writer
Quoting: A quote contains the exact words from a source. Don't forget to use quotation marks and cite the source.
