Citing Your Sources

Depending on your instructor's preference, you will be using the Chicago Manual of Style or APA (American Psychological Association) style when citing the sources you used for your research paper.

The American Anthropological Association now uses the Chicago Manuel style for all their publications. See their brief guide to citations.

The Writing Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison also has an excellent introduction to APA Documentation that will give you the basic information you need to create APA citations and reference lists. The Chicago Manual has a Citation Quick Guide to both Chicago documentation systems.

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.
