Citation Resources

Welcome! Print Page


This LibGuide was designed to provide you with assistance in citing your sources when writing a paper.

There are different styles which format the information differently, so select the MLA or APA tab above for the style you need and take a look at some examples.



There are quite a few different ways to cite resources in your paper. The citation style usually depends on the academic discipline involved. For example:

  • MLA style is typically used by the Humanities
  • APA style is often used by Education and Psychology
  • Chicago/Turabian is generally used by History, Business, and some of the Fine Arts

Check with your professor to make sure you use the required style. And whatever style you choose, BE CONSISTENT!


What is a Citation?

A citation (or reference) is a short, multipart description of a source.  A good citation will lead the reader to the source of the information. 

See our video on How to Read a Citation for assistance in understanding the parts of a citation.
