Online Resources for Citation Formats

Confusing, right? Only a little. Learning how to do citations takes a little bit of time, but fortunately there are some really good websites out there that show you how to format them.

Our particular favorites are:
Online Writing Lab (OWL) from Purdue University—an extensive site for both MLA and APA citation styles. They provide examples of almost any kind of source you might need to cite.

Chicago Manual of Style from Purdue OWL—Purdue University also has an extensive style guide for the Chicago Manual.

Now go forth and cite ALL your sources. And remember, it's hard to cite too much, and your professors would rather see too many citations than not enough. When in doubt, cite it.
