How do I cite my sources?

Answer

Use this quick guide to cite the most common types of sources in APA, MLA, or Chicago style.

Note the separate tabs for different style editions--make sure to check to be sure you are using the edition needed.

If you are not sure how to cite a source, you can always ask a librarian. Use the library chat, contact your subject librarian, or email the library to ask a question about citations. Librarians can help with citation questions for any style.

Most library databases will format citations for articles found in that database. In addition, free citation creators are available online. Be sure to proofread all citations to ensure that they are correct. Check especially for capitalization errors.
