  • Zotero Bib -  is a free service that helps you build a bibliography instantly from any computer or device, without creating an account or installing any software. See FAQ at   It is also helpful for its feature to save as an .RIS file that can be imported into a more robust citation manager such as EndNote Web.  Zotero Bib APA 7th style will automatically correct for sentence case capatilization.
  • EndNote Web (currently called EndNote Basic , EndNote Online) - free to CSUN students, staff, and faculty; integrates with MS Word and several browsers (IE,Chrome, Firefox); can export references directly from many databases.   You can contact EndNote help desk, Monday-Friday, 24 hours at 855-258-5858.
