There are many resources here at the library to help you with citations, including both the Noel Studio and the Student Success Center. Both are happy to help, whether by appointment or by simply walking in. The Noel Studio also offers workshops on citing sources, which you can request at least two weeks in advance. In addition, the library has created several resources that will help walk you through the citation process.

For help with APA style, take a look at the Noel Studio's APA Quick Reference Guide.

There is also a handy research guide for citations, which will walk you through basic citation information. 

In addition, the Noel Studio has provided a guide for Document Styles by Discipline. The links on this page will take you to the online style guides for many of the different citation styles, which can aid in your research. You can also make an appointment with any one of our reference librarians, or stop by the front desk to ask a reference librarian for citation help. 

If you're unable to make it to the library, you can also check out the Purdue OWL's website, which features a handy guide for citing sources in a variety of formats. Additionally, many of our online databases (including all of the EBSCOhost databases), provide citation information for you upon finding an article. Here is an example from Academic Search Complete, the most commonly used database:


Once you've found an article, simply pull up the article's information page (as shown above) and click on "Cite" (which can be found in the right-hand menu). This will lead you to a list of citations in various formats that you can use to make your bibliography a little easier to complete. As a general warning, these are not always perfectly accurate, but they are a great place to start in a pinch!
