Paper Citation Guides in the Library

It is important to cite your sources to give credit where it is due and to avoid the consequences of plagiarism. 

Check with your instructor as to which style format you need to use.  The Mabee-Simpson Library has guides for several formatting styles (MLA, APA, Chicago/Turabian and others).   Listed below are the library's hard copy of style manuals.
