Need help citing sources for your papers?

A lot of the library databases have a built-in citation tool that will provide you with the the basics of a citation. Use the Citation Tools page as a guide for each database. This instruction page provides you with an image of where to locate the citation tool in a particular database. When using a citation tool in a database, just remember to double check the citation before using it in your bibliography, as the citations may still have inconsistencies or errors.(especially APA, which often lacks the journal url or DOI).

Find more about Citing Sources by going to the Guides & Help > How To > Cite Sources page on the library menu.
