Citing Your Sources

There are many citation styles, but the most commonly used citation styles are APA (American Psychological Association Style Manual), MLA (Modern Language Association Style Manual), and Chicago Style Manual.  These style manuals will help you cite the sources you used properly and consistently so your readers will know where to look for additional information.  See the library subject guide for Citing Sources.  If you have any questions feel free to consult with your librarian!
