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 links to guides that can help you? To find the guides, simply begin at the Leatherby Libraries homepage. On the right side of the screen under the word Research, select Citation / Style Guides to enter the Citation / Style Guides LibGuide.

On the homepage of the guide, you will see General Style Guide Sites. One site in particular is very helpful: Long Island University Citation Style for Research Papers. 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. In addition to General Style Guide Sites, there are tab for AMA, APA, Chicago, and MLA. Simply click on the tab for the style you need to find examples and more links.

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