EBSCO (including OneSearch), Proquest, Ebrary, and EBL all include features to give you the citation for a particular article or ebook within their search interface. Many other publisher sites (ScienceDirect, Wiley, etc.) may also have this feature. 
Ask a library staff member where to find these.  Their citations may not be perfectly correct (especially with regard to capitalization) so check what they give you against the official rules.
