Once you've researched, you need to document what you've found in your paper.
There are several major (and many more minor) styles used for formatting citation information. This guide provides links to resources that will help you properly format your paper according to the style specified by your professor.
This page begins with general guides covering multiple styles. Additional subpages focus on these styles:
APA: American Psychological Association Style
MLA: Modern Language Association Style
AMA: American Medical Association Style
Other Styles & Topics: ACS, CBE, ERIC, etc.
WCU Libraries, through its subscription to the Web of Science databases, provides access to a robust web-based bibliographic citation management service, EndNote Web. See the tab above for how to set up an account and use this powerful utility.
These tools let you chose your citation style and source type, then you enter the information and they create a formatted citation for you. They can be very handy, but be sure to check your results for errors! Automation is not perfect!
These sites cover all of the "major" citation styles. You will find help with the Chicago and Turabian Styles in these sites.
