Library and Writing Center Offer Citation Help

Citing resources can be a challenge.  The SCC Library and the Writing Center can help.

Online Help

These two websites are great places to start:  The OWL at Purdue and Univ. of Wisconsin-Madison Writing Center Writer’s Handbook.  Both sites offer assistance for citing resources using several formats.  Visit the Writing Center’s Writing Resources for more links.

Citing Articles from Online Databases

Most of the library databases now include links to the citation format for individual articles.  Look for a link labeled “cite” or “citenow,” or ask a librarian for help finding the link.

Library and Writing Center Handouts

Instructional flyers that illustrate citations for print and electronic sources in MLA, APA, and other styles are available at the library reference desk and in the Writing Center.

Reference Books

Students will find MLA, APA, and other style manuals at the library reference desk and in the Writing Center.  Stop by and ask.  We’ll be happy to help.
