We’re entering the homestretch of the semester – and assignments will soon be due. While we all know we should “cite as we write,” few students do. So, if you’re polishing up your researched writing assignments and need assistance, the Library can help. Three heavily-used resources librarians use to answer your citing questions include:

If you’ve got a citing question you cannot answer, copy the citation info into an Ask-a-Librarian form. Mention what format you are supposed to be following and whether you need an in-text, bibliographic citation, – or both – and submit it. A librarian will respond.

Remember, while database-generated citations are a great place to start, you *do* need to eyeball them to see that they match your assigned citation formatting style.
