Citing Your Sources

If you’ve been asked to submit your final paper in MLA or APA format…
  • Stop by the reference desk in the library and pick-up MLA and APA handouts with citation examples for print and digital books, magazines, journals, and websites.
  • Check SWC Library's Citing Sources page where we posted links to quick and more detailed guides to citation styles.

A friendly reminder! When you use database sources, you don’t need to create citations from scratch. Find the “CITE” button and select the citation in APA or MLA format, but be sure to double check it (automatically generated citations are not always accurate).

If you need one-on-one help with organizing your paper and formatting it in MLA or APA style, call the Writing Center and ask for a 30-minute tutoring session.

Good luck with your final papers!
