In this chapter, we've really only scratched the surface of citing sources. There are many other types of materials you might have to cite at some point in your university career, and they all have their quirks. Use the following resources for more information about citing document types not covered in this chapter:
Citation Styles - Virtual Reference Shelf (will open in a new window)
Short guides for both APA and MLA styles cover the formats you will use most often.
For examples not covered in our Quick Reference guides, remember that you can consult these manuals, both of which are available at the Reference Desk and on reserve at Ryan, Arrigoni, and Rockland Libraries:
APA: Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. 5th ed. Washington, DC : American Psychological Association, 2001.
MLA: Gibaldi, Joseph. MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers. 6th ed. New York: Modern Language Association of America, 2003.
And don't forget: reference librarians are happy to help with any questions you might have about how to cite your sources correctly!
