Citing Your Sources

You must use the APA (American Psychological Association) style when citing the sources you used for your research paper. The APA Publication Manual is available at the Dana Library Reference Desk. 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 Unitec Institute of Technology (NZ) has a guide for Referencing Reports using APA 6th edition.

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
