Citations and Bibliographies

  • What is a citation?

    A citation is the information needed to identify a book or article: author, title, date, etc. For books, it will include the publisher and place of publication; for articles, it will include the title of the periodical, volume and page numbers.

  • How do I format the citations in the bibliography of my paper?

    Find out which style manual your professor would like you to use (the most common are APA and MLA), and get a copy of the manual; the library reference desks are one place to find the manuals.
