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
  • Chicago Author-Date is used by Archeologists

Check with your professor to make sure you use the required style. Whatever style you use, be consistent!
