Using the built-in Boundless citations:

At the bottom of each page of content, there will be a button that says "Cite this!" This will generate an appropriate citation for that page of content: 

Making your own citations:

Alternatively, you can craft your own citations. You can use the convention of your choice (MLA, APA, Chicago, etc.) for citing the resources you find on Boundless. See the Purdue Online Writing Lab for guidelines for these different citation styles.


Be sure to note the differences between citing content written by Boundless (these will say “by Boundless” at the top of every page) versus content written by community authors (these will say “by [Author Name]” at the top of every page). See example screenshots below.


Example of content by Boundless:
