Citation styles

Below are links to information on some of the most widely-used citation styles. Be sure to ask your instructor which citation style to use for your paper or project.

Managing your citations

There are a number of software programs available that help students store references and notes, create bibliographies, etc. While not needed for every assignment, they are particularly useful for when you are gathering a large number of articles and other resources for projects such as capstone papers, theses, and dissertations.The Webster University Library has an institutional subscription to Mendeley, but other products may work just as well. Make sure the software program you choose covers the bibliographic style you will be using to format your references, such as APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.
