Answer

A citation machine or builder makes citations by having the user complete an online form with the information for their source.  The machine then rearranges the information into the proper MLA or APA format.
 
Machines and builders are not perfect!  The user needs to select the right form, and they must still input the information correctly.  Feel free to use these tools but double-check your citations.
