General

We cite sources to acknowledge the work of others, as well as to avoid academic dishonesty, or plagiarism.  There are various formats for citing sources and your instructior will tell you which to follow.

  • APA Video Tutorial
    Explains the purpose of citing as well as explaining the parts of a citation. The rules are for APA (American Psychological Association), but the concepts are universal.
  • APA 6th edition
    A guide that includes examples of various citations.
  • MLA
    This guide provides examples for various citations according to the rules of MLA, The Modern Language Association (most often used in the humanities)

Bibliographic Management

There are many programs that allow you to organize references and create bibliographies. Listed below are some of the most commonly used on campus.

  • EndNote X8
    The campus has purchased a site license, which allows students, faculty and staff to download a copy of EndNote X3. This program takes time to learn and is best used for large numbers of references.
  • EndNote Web
    Best for students who want to create simple bibliographies. Resides on the web.
  • Zotero
    A Firefox extension to help you collect, manage, cite, and share your research sources.
