Correctly citing information is an essential skill for any academic researcher. Our Major Citation Styles guide provides links to several online style guides covering the basics of correctly citing your sources.
It's often best to consult the official style guides when in doubt. Most ULS libraries will have copies of such popular citation style guides as the American Psychological Association, the Modern Language Association, or the Chicago Manual of Style.
Online citation managers are an easy way to keep track of all of your references. The University Library System resources work with tools such as Mendeley, EndNote, and Zotero. These are tools for importing citations from sources like PittCat and article databases that can automatically integrate them into your research paper and bibliography.
Organizing your research and putting your ideas down on paper can be difficult. You can get writing help at the Writing Center.
