Citation Tutorial & Resource Page – We have a page on our site with a number of citation resources to students’ questions. We have user-friendly handouts for APA, MLA, Chicago, and other common citation styles. Additionally, we have links to other helpful resources on campus. This is a good first step when helping with a citation question.
Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) – Purdue OWL is an up-to-date resource with lots of wonderful examples on how to follow common citation guides.
WOU Library Citation Guides – WOU Library also has wonderful and in-depth resources for following the common citation guides used at our university. You can find links to sample papers here, too.
