Get Help With Cited References

‘Tis the season…to write papers! One of the more tricky parts of writing a research paper is using the correct citation format and being consistent throughout. Instead of using guesswork to cite your references, let the University Libraries help you do it the correct way, right from your own computer. At the Libraries Homepage, you will find under Quick Links information on both Citation and Style Guides pages.

Citation generators take your information about a resouce and create bibliographies, notes, and in-tect citations in the format of your choosing. If you’re interested in citation generators, the Citation page lists a variety of citation-generating software, including Son of a Citation Machine, KnightCite and the very popular EndNote. Best of all, most of these generators are free! The Libraries are here to link you up with whichever citation generator you would like to try depending on which style you use.

Into citing references, old-school style? Then the Style Guides page will link you up with online resources to help you get your citation right. Here, you will find a list of the most used style guides in academic writing, including APA and MLA. This link is handy when you are word-processing your paper and you need a quick look-up on citing your research.

Still have a citation question? You can always Ask A Librarian!
