APA & MLA

There are two components to citing sources:

  • In-text Citations are used when paraphrasing or quoting an author in your assignments.
  • The References (APA) or Works Cited (MLA) page is the bibliography at the end of your assignments.

APA Style

  • The Publication Manual of the APA is available at the reference desk. There are also circulating copies at BF76.7 .P83 2010.
  • Use our general APA Tip Sheet or the tips for business sources.
  • Read the formatting and style guidelines from the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL).
  • Watch our APA in Minutes videos for help with citing your sources.
