    Welcome

    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 tab for the style you need and take a look at some examples.
     

    Overview

    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, Psychology, and Business.
    • Chicago/Turabian is generally used by History 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!

     

    Research Papers

    "The purpose of a research paper is to synthesize previous research and scholarship with your ideas on the subject. Therefore, you should feel free to use other persons' words, facts, and thoughts in your research paper, but the material you borrow must not be presented as if it were your own creation."

    MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers. 7th Edition. New York: MLA. 55. Print.
