Research in Google Docs - Using the Research Tool and NEW Easy Bib Add-on

Can Google Docs get any better?  They always seem to be coming out with new tools that make life easier.  I love how they are always changing for the better.

Today, Google just added Add-ons to their Docs and Sheets.  Add-ons are tools created by developer partners that add extra features to help you do your work.

One of the cool new Add-ons is by Easy Bib.  Easy Bib is an amazing tool to help you write bibliographies.  The new (free!) Add-on integrates into your Google Docs.  Once you install the Easy Bib Add-on, you can use it in each of your documents to help you create a perfectly formatted bibliography in APA, MLA, or Chicago styles.  It even indents the second line!

Here's a video on how to use the Add-on as well as how to use the Google Research Tool to find sources, insert them into your document, and cite the sources as footnotes.
