Most of the library databases include pre-generated citations. For the databases you'll be using, look for the word Cite in the right sidebar:
Although these tools are helpful, they're not perfect - they often capitalize the wrong things, or leave out an issue number. Google Scholar sometimes misunderstands the type of source you're citing.

Books and articles are what you'll cite the most, so really learn how to cite those properly. For everything else, Google is my go-to. For example, if you're not sure how to cite a video in-text, just Google "video apa in-text". Look for results from apastyle.org, and college libraries or writing centers.
