Citation Help 101

It is that time of year where citations abound. Not familiar with the citation style your professor requires? No need to worry! Musselman Library has copies of the major citation style guides including APA, MLA, Turabian and Chicago. Just stop by the Reference Desk and the librarian on duty will be happy to help you!

There are also some great citation formatters available online. Visit the Library homepage and click on Citation Guides to find the citation tool that’s right for you!

Try out a quick and dirty formatter like SourceAid or a power tool like RefWorks. Either one will save you time (and your sanity) when you need to produce a bibliography. Feel free to ask a librarian for a quick tour to get you started.
