The librarians have developed guides for citing print sources, full-text periodical articles from online databases such as EBSCOhost and Gale, and Web pages. Examples from four style manuals (MLA, APA, Turabian, and Scientific Style-CSE) are available at Citing Sources. If your source isn't listed on the page, the complete style manuals are available in the library.
There are prioritized lists of databases to use for each major on campus from the Articles & Guides Web page. For example, if you're taking a Biology course and need to find articles for that class (even if your major is Mathematics), click on Biological Sciences on the Find by Subject list. The titles are in recommended order for usefulness to find articles on topics common to each major.
