Online citation help guides:
- Many databases create citations for you. Look for a citation button when you download full-text articles. Often this citation info isn’t formatted correctly. If you use citation info from databases, compare your citation elements and formatting against examples from the guides linked above.
- Remember to take down citation information while using your source to avoid hunting it down later.
- The Library has up-to-date copies of the APA, MLA, Chicago, and AMA style manuals/handbooks in print format at the Reference Desk.
- Zotero is an open source solution for students wanting to keep track of their sources as they work. Try either the Firefox add-on or the stand alone client application.
