Citation Guides

These guides assist you in properly formatting the citations to articles, books, images, etc., you find in databases and elsewhere.  There are several commonly used styles.  Different disciplines or classes might have preferences.  The citation-making feature of database providers may not always be reliable.

Citation Management Resources

Citation management (or bibliographic management) tools enable you to save citations, sort them, and output them in different ways.
