Cite as you Write – words to live by so you can avoid that sinking feeling if you haven’t kept track of your information sources used to write a paper, and that job looms before you.

Need help with citing?  Librarians suggest the Purdue Owl websites for both APA Formatting & Style Guide and MLA  Formatting & Style Guide citation formats.  You’ll find those links on our Citing Sources Subject Guide. They’re easy to use, provide the “pattern” or “recipe” for a citation, followed by real examples.

Librarians are ready to assist you with citing. Visit the Reference Desk, call us at 616-234-3868, or use the Ask-a-Librarian email form.

Spring Break update

Librarians are on Spring Break, too, but we’re checking Ask-a-Librarian at least once a day until the Library reopens on Monday, March 12.  If you need assistance, send us an Ask-a-Librarian question.  We’ll get back to you!
