Bibliography style repository with preview

This site has collection of over 1000 citation styles (over 300 unique styles) that can be used in Zotero, Mendeley, or Papers.
The great thing about this site is the styles can be searched by fields and format such as biology and author-date.
Unfortunately, I haven’t found the way to use it with LaTeX, yet.

Setting the width of a column to make the text wrapped in LaTeX.

\begin{center}
    \begin{tabular}{ | l | l | l | p{5cm} |}
    \hline
    Day & Min Temp & Max Temp & Summary \\ \hline
    Monday & 11C & 22C & A clear day with lots of sunshine.  
    However, the strong breeze will bring down the temperatures. \\ \hline
    Tuesday & 9C & 19C & Cloudy with rain, across many northern regions. Clear spells
    across most of Scotland and Northern Ireland,
    but rain reaching the far northwest. \\ \hline
    Wednesday & 10C & 21C & Rain will still linger for the morning.
    Conditions will improve by early afternoon and continue
    throughout the evening. \\
    \hline
    \end{tabular}
