BibMe.org is a new site that automatically generates RTF bibliographies for download in MLA, Chicago, and APA styles. I created the Works Cited page above in as long as it took me to type Hitchhiker's Guide, Harry Potter, and Cryptonomicon. I'm a fan of the MLA style, so a dropdown and a click later and I had downloaded the text above.
I'm not holding my breath, but this actually has the potential to drastically improve the way students reference other people's work. Since all too many of our students are from the cut and paste school of thought, giving them a works cited page they can also cut and paste with minimal effort seems like a great idea. They certainly can't complain that they don't know how to make a bibliography any more.
