You will find information here on how to cite your sources properly using MLA, APA, and Chicago citation styles. Please keep in mind that these are suggestions on how to cite according to each style. Follow the guidelines set by your instructors and consult the style guide manuals for clarification.

Our most popular guides:

Some databases, such as EBSCOhost and ProQuest, have a citation button to display how to format citations for each record.
