Citation Styles and Examples

The three most commonly used citation styles are APA, MLA and Chicago/Turabian.  Check with your professor if you are not sure which style to use.  There are paper copies of all of the citation manuals at the Rolvaag reference desk (see images to the right) in the bookshelf immediately under the public computer.  Help yourself to these as questions arise.  They can only be used in the library, however.  Here are call numbers for all 4 manuals.
