Need help with that bibliography?

If you have questions about putting the finishing touches on your final paper– i.e. finishing your references list or bibliography– the Library can help!

Check out our Citation Guide under “How Do I Guides…?”  on the Library homepage.  This guide has links to citation manuals in all the major citation styles (MLA, APA, Chicago) as well as some minor ones (AAA, ASA)!

The Citation Guide also has instructions on how to get started with a Citation Manager like ZoteroEasyBib, or Refworks,— a piece of handy software that can save citations and generate bibliographies for you automatically.

Need to know how to format a citation for a specific source? What about how to cite a blog, website, video,  book with two authors, or a tweet?)  Here are some online citation manuals other students have found helpful:

Finally, sometimes virtual tools just don’t cut it.  If you need to talk to a real, live librarian about citing your sources, see a reference librarian or chat with a librarian* any time, day or night, via Ask Us 24/7.


*you might be helped by a librarian at another university that cooperates with Purchase College Library, but they know lots about citation too!
