Google Docs added a citation tool last year that has been a huge help to many, making citing source material far easier. Recently the good folks at Google updated the citation tool to include film, TV series, and TV episodes resources. 

After you select and specify how you accessed the source, you can then fill in the fields that appear. You can also add bibliography and In-text citations as well. The new-and-improved citation ability is currently limited to the desktop application.  

Although not yet available to all, the new tool should be fully rolled out within the next month. However, it's currently available to all Workspace accounts and G Suite Basic and Business users. 

The added capabilities coming online shortly will make writing academic papers since it removes the need to copy citations from other tools. Being able to easily cite sources also saves time and energy and keeps your focus right in front of you, making for a better workflow. 

Mark has spent 20 years headlining comedy shows around the country and made appearances on ABC, MTV, Comedy Central, Howard Stern, Food Network, and Sirius XM Radio. He has written about every topic imaginable, from dating, family, politics, social issues, and tech. He wrote his first tech articles for the now-defunct Dads On Tech 10 years ago, and his passion for combining humor and tech has grown under the tutelage of the Laptop Mag team. His penchant for tearing things down and rebuilding them did not make Mark popular at home, however, when he got his hands on the legendary Commodore 64, his passion for all things tech deepened. These days, when he is not filming, editing footage, tinkering with cameras and laptops, or on stage, he can be found at his desk snacking, writing about everything tech, new jokes, or scripts he dreams of filming.
