Citation Guides


There are quite a few different ways to cite resources in your paper. The citation style usually depends on the academic discipline involved. For example:

  • MLA style is typically used by the Humanities
  • APA style is often used by Education, Psychology, Business, and by many professions.
  • Chicago/Turabian is generally used by History and some of the Fine Arts

Check with your professor to make sure you use the required style. And whatever style you choose, BE CONSISTENT!

Database Citation Tools

Databases often include a tool to locate an article citation called Cite or Citation Tool. It will give you the option to select between the various citation formats, but be sure to reference a citation manual to make certain the content and format is correct!
