    Copy Citation for Record

    This information is not applicable to Primo VE environments. For more details on Primo VE configuration, see Primo VE.
    The Citation action has been added to the Actions drop-down list (which was previously named Send to) in the search results and the e-Shelf to allow end users to copy citations in different styles (APA, MLA, and Chicago/Turabian) for individual records in their search results and e-Shelf. This option utilizes the EasyBib API to create the citations.
    Citation Action in Actions Drop-Down List
    This action opens the Citation dialog box, which displays the record’s citation in the default style. Users may select a different style (APA, MLA, or Chicago) and then click the Select Citation Text button to select the citation so that it can be copied and pasted to wherever it is needed.
