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.

The 7th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA) is now available. Copies of the manual are available at the North and Lakeshore libraries.

Humber Librarians are working on updating the APA support materials to reflect the changes of the 7th Edition. An APA 7th Tip Sheet has been created. The APA in Minutes video series updates are underway.
