How to Use This Guide

Welcome to our citation guide!

Choose your preferred citation style (or the one required by your instructor) from the menu on the left.  There are tabbed pages within many of the sections to give specific examples to fit the source you're citing. 

Many of our databases have citation tools that you can use with the article you found there.  You only have to choose your style and export or copy and paste. Be aware that citations may not always copy well from another source. For instance, you may have to edit the format to restore the hanging indent. Or you may have to create a citation for the work you're citing.

This guide explains how to cite some of the sources you're most likely to use for your research. But citation styles are flexible and allow you to cite lots of different kinds of sources. If you'd like help citing something that's not listed here, take a look at an official style manual from the list on the right, or talk to a librarian.
