You will be using Chicago/Turabian style, or MLA (Modern Language Association) style, when citing the sources that you use in your research papers. The MLA Style Manual is available at the Dana Library Reference Desk. The Writing Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison also has an excellent introduction to MLA Documentation. This will give you the basic information you need to create MLA citations and Works Cited/Reference lists.The Rutgers Libraries provide access to The Chicago Manual of Style Online
The Chicago Manual of Style and Turabian's Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations are also both available at the Dana Library Reference Desk. The Writing Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison also has a nice introduction to Chicago/Turabian Documentation that will give you the basic information you need to create bibliographic citations.
The above site does not, however, cover citing online resources. The Library of Congress has a guide on How to Cite Electronic Sources that show Turabian-style examples.
You can also import references from the Catalog and many of the electronic databases into RefWorks, or EndNote, two web-based bibliography and citation management systems. Citation management systems will store your citations and build your bibliography for you based on whatever style sheet you specify (MLA, Chicago, etc.).
For information on setting up a RefWorks account see the RefWorks FAQ.
To download EndNote, see the EndNote page
