Citation Guide

This guide presents information and resources on APA, MLA, and Chicago styles as well as guidance on citation management programs.

Some disciplines use style manuals outside of APA, MLA, and Chicago. This page will provide an overview of some of the other styles as well as links to online or print copies of the guides. If you need more in-depth assistance with a citation style, contact your subject librarian for a consultation.
