MLA, APA, University of Chicago?
Need help getting the reference list at the end of your paper, or the citations in the paper, in that special form your teacher wants? On the library home page click on Citation and Bibliography Styles. That takes you to a page where you can choose the right guide for the style you need, whether it's APA, MLA etc. The Diane Hacker links you'll see are for a manual that gives lots of examples for the different styles. Citation Builder and Citation Machine are sites that take your entries and format them for you. Between these different resources you should be pretty well set, but remember, in the end, it is your teacher, not these sites, not a librarian, who decides if you did it right or not, so ask your professor when in doubt!
