As we near the end of the session, many of you will have a final project due that needs to be written in a certain citation format, usually APA or MLA. Did you know that we have a link to a guide that can help you? To find the guide, simply begin at the Leatherby Libraries homepage. On the right side of the screen under the word Research, select Citation / Style Guides to see a list of the citation guides that we have to offer. Once you are on the homepage, there are two extremely helpful guides that you can find under the heading General Style Guide Sites.

My first citation guide recommendation is the Long Island University Citation Style for Research Papers site. Created by Robert Delany, this citation guide covers APA, MLA, Turabian, Chicago, and AMA. It includes citations guidelines, but it also offers the added bonus of using color-coding to make it easier to see the individual components. And the examples are all about Star Trek. The other guide that I would suggest for APA is also on the home tab. Scroll down to the APA Style Guide to Electronic References. You can view or print the Guide.

You can also contact your Brandman librarians for citation assistance. In the meantime, why not take the Citation out for a spin?
