Shakespeare Research: Welcome

EndNote and RefWorks

Two powerful programs that let you save citations, insert those citations into your paper, and automatically create a works cited at the end. Provided by the university to all members of the NU community.

Citation Styles for Literature

Always check with your professor to see if there is a required style for your paper. 

In general, researchers in English and American literature use the citation style in the Modern Language Association (MLA) Style Guide or the Notes-Bibliography version of the Chicago Manual of Style. We have both citation manuals here in the library; alternatively, see the web summaries below.

New Articles on Shakespeare

From the MLA International Bibliography.
