Familiarity with APA style for writing and citing references is important for two reasons: students need to be able to use it correctly on their papers and assignments, and skill at understanding citations means it will be easier to use citations found in articles and books to locate additional relevant research.The Sac State Library has many resources for learning about APA (American Psychological Association) style.
