Citation Resources

No matter where your information comes from, you always need to cite your sources. The most frequently used citation formats - APA, MLA, and Chicago - have been compiled by the reference librarians on a webpage. These can be found by visiting the webpage Citing Sources

Most databases provide automatic citations for resources. If you find something you like, the option to cite is often in the left-hand sidebar. See the example below.

When you locate the "cite" option, you just need to copy and paste from the relevant format

NOTE: Citations generated by the databases are not always 100% correct. If a perfect citation is important to you, you will want to confirm the formatting against the guidelines for the relevant style linked on our Citing Sources webpage.
