How to Use this Guide
This LibGuide was designed to provide you with assistance in citing your sources when writing a paper.
There are different styles which format the information differently, so select the tab for the style you need and take a look at some examples.
A bibliography lists citations for all of the relevant resources a person consulted during his or her research.
In an annotated bibliography, each citation is followed by a brief note—or annotation—that describes and/or evaluates the source and the information found in it.
A works cited list presents citations for those sources referenced in a particular paper, presentation, or other composition.
There are quite a few different ways to cite resources in your paper. The citation style usually depends on the academic discipline involved. For example:
- MLA style is typically used by the Humanities
- APA style is often used by Education, Psychology, and Business.
- Chicago/Turabian is generally used by History and some of the Fine Arts
Check with your professor to make sure you use the required style. Whatever style you use, be consistent!
