This guide will help you learn how to find and use style guides, locate, use and organize citation information, and understand purposes of citation.

When to Get Help

Seek library help about citation at any point in the research and writing process:

  • While researching:
    • as you record information
    • as you organize the information you collect
  • While writing
    • as you format citations and bibliographic entries

Because citation management tools help do all of the above, save yourself a lot of time and trouble: find a librarian to help you learn how to use one as you begin a project.


Remember, if you are wondering which citation style to use, or if you are worried your formatting isn't correct, a librarian can help you find resources to make decisions, but we can't make these decisions for you. We recommend checking with your professor.
