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.
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 and Psychology
- Chicago/Turabian style is generally used by History, Business, and some of the Fine Arts
Check with your professor to make sure you use the required style. And whatever style you choose, BE CONSISTENT!
If you are citing music items, please see Misti Shaw's Guide to Citing in Turabian format.
