On-line Help for formating papers

Diana Hacker, "Research and Documentation Online"

Hacker's guide covers a range of questions related to writing and documenting research papers across the disciplines. Look here for sample essays showing proper formating and citation styles in the sciences, humanities, social sciences and history.

APA Citation Resource

The American Psychological Association's (APA) style guide is designed for scholars in the social sciences. Citations in this style may be called for in psychology, sociology, and education courses. Purdue University's Online Writing Lab is a good resource for rules and examples related to formatting your "in-text citations" and "works cited" page according to APA guidelines.


Information for Works Cited

Here's a list of some common information you'll need to write your bibliography or works cited page. When you find a good source, make sure you keep track of this information. Remember that all of this information for the books you cite can be found in the library catalog and many databases will give you the option of creating a citation for articles of interest. Look for the links when you're printing, emailing, or downloading a resource.
