  • The librarians at Murray Library are happy to help you with any questions regarding MLA, APA, or Chicago style and citation. They can also help you find sources for a research project.
  • The Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL): This website offers materials covering everything from citation styles to major-specific writing tips.  
  • APA Style: The APA style website is the most comprehensive resource regarding APA style and citations.
  • The Writer's Reference: This book doesn't just contain writing tips. It also has style guides for Chicago, APA, and MLA styles.

Helpful Hint: If you’re on a subject database such as Academic Search Ultimate, look for the “Cite” button to generate a citation right on the website! Be sure to double-check these citations before using them; citation generators are prone to making mistakes.
