  • Citation Choices
    • Two citation choices are:

    • Your instructor will specify which citation style you should use.

  • Word of Caution
    • Occasionally, APA and MLA will change their formatting styles. The library has no control over these changes.
    • Also, while we make every effort to review the web sites provided, an error can still occur.
    • Ultimately, it is your responsibility to become familiar with the citation format used in your class.
  • Print Editions
    • The library purchases the latest print editions of both APA and MLA style manuals. You are encouraged to consult these books.
    • Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association
    • MLA Handbook for Writers of Research
    • The most up-to-date edition of each manual is located on reserve at the Circulation Desk. Older copies may be found in the book stacks, but these may not have the newest guidelines.
  • Citation Game
    • You can practice your citation skills by playing a game created by the University of Washington.
