"Great for bibliography creation!"

What do you like best?

When I was growing up, my parents and grandparents described how life was tough when they were kids. Now, I have my own version of the story to tell - when I was a kid, I had to study citation manuals to make sure that I cited works correctly. My kids won't understand because of platforms like EasyBib - which do all of the heavy lifting for you. Simply put, EasyBib is a good option for creating a bibliography or works cited page within Google Docs. It's free to use where other competitors are not. It's somewhat intuitive and user-friendly. It seamlessly cites sources in APA and MLA, the most popular formats, but best of all, is that it has the ability to build cite sources in less common formats (such as Chicago-style). Not much else to say - it's a pretty simple idea and works reliably well. It's great for students, and could help them want to cite their sources more responsibly.

What do you dislike?

Few complaints, but I offered 7/10 because it does can with ads that can be annoying and distracting. All in all, it's not easy on the eyes either - this can be distracting for students.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's worth trying. Students have the ability to easily create bibliographies. If your goal is for them to learn the process of citing sources, than this is not the tool for you, but if you just want them to be responsible with citations, then go for it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Building works cited pages and teaching students to cite sources.

"Perfect add-on for Docs"

What do you like best?

EasyBib is the perfect add-on and companion for Google Docs. Gone are the days when you struggle through creating a bibliography, stressed over whether or not you used the correct style/format, and worried that you'll lose points from citation errors - EasyBib does it for you. Plus, it's free! You needn't pay! Last, it's incredibly simple to learn to use.

What do you dislike?

Looking beyond the pros, a few suggestions for improvement include:

- Update the graphics/design - the interface could be a bit cleaner.

- Ads can be a bit pushy - we get it, you are a free service and you want to make money. But your ads can be distracting for users, distracting to the point where I wish I could find an ad-free alternative.

- Continue to improve the responsiveness. The add-on can lag.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Creating works cited or bibliographies in a fraction of the time.

"Fantastic Experience"

What do you like best?

I like that it is easy and free to use! Where a lot of other bibliography makers are now forcing you to pay or use ads to use them.

What do you dislike?

I disliked that it wasn't easy to find when I looked for a bibliography maker, it did not pop up on my search engine and the ones that popped up you had to pay for or watch ads.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just do it! It will be a great experience for you and your office when referencing materials.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work in an academic setting so this is great for referencing papers, research, videos, etc. The benefit is saving time not doing them manually or watching ads to be able to copy and paste or download your references.

"Easy to use, just copy paste"

What do you like best?

You can change the citation form from MLA, APA, Chicago, etc. It is as easy and copy paste a URL, look up by IBSN or keyword. Once you have found the resource, it gets added to your Works Cited or Bibliography!

What do you dislike?

Does not use the access date which is required for some citations

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great add-on for educational and professional purposes

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Citing resources in professional papers for continuing education credit.

"Simplifies Life "

What do you like best?

Citing sources, though very much necessary, has always been a pain. Back in the day, you would have to painstakingly look up the correct format based on the source you were using and devise a citation manually. This add-on makes life so much easier by allowing you to quickly generate accurate citations in your Google Docs. It’s a seamless integration

What do you dislike?

I really don’t have much to complain about at all here. It’s taken one of my favorite services and made it even better.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Extremely simple citation method that is now integrated into a collaborative workspace.
