Cite It!

Posted on April 27, 2011. Filed under: Information | Tags: , , , , |

Papers are coming due, and students need to get their work cited page written. Here are some great resources to help students complete this last step in their research papers.

Library Web Page
The library has a great web page called How to cite your sources that provides the basic tools for citing your sources. It has links to online tools for citing such as Noodlebib and websites from credible sources that explain the elements of each citation style.

Citation Guides

If the online resources don’t have everything you need,  you can also check out the citation guides available at the reference desk at Des Plaines and in the reference section at Skokie.
