Getting help with citations

Don't forget: You can ASK A LIBRARIAN for citation help!
Other tools -- often the ones librarians themselves use -- are right at your fingertips, too.

The Citation Styles LibGuide provides a detailed overview of how to use various citation styles. Stylebooks can also be borrowed for library use - just ask at the desk.

The Purdue OWL is another helpful resource. In addition to detailed information about citing sources in MLA and APA, the OWL includes examples of citations for different resource types.
