Citing your Sources

Check our pages on avoiding plagiarism and citations and bibliographies.

Your instructor will generally specify the preferred citation style for your class.  Commonly used citation styles include: APA (American Psychological Association), Chicago, ASA (American Sociological Association), and MLA (Modern Languages Association).

The Purdue OWL (Online Writing Lab) is an extraordinary resource for all aspects of paper writing, including citation and bibliography.  The Site Map is a good place to begin.
