Citation & Formatting

  • APA (formatting, headings, title page, citing common reference types)
  • MLA (how to cite common reference types) - 7th Edition
  • Chicago (formatting, footnotes, using ibid, citing common reference types)


Both the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association and the Modern Language Association style guidelines were revised in summer 2009. Follow the links to the left for updated information about the changes.

Please take note! The first printing of the 2009 Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association includes a number of errors. The writing center has the corrected version (the second printing) of the guide on our shelves.

See the APA website for information on corrections you can make to your guide and the process for having your defective guide replaced.
Additional resources about MLA and APA, as well as other citation/style guides, are listed on our Useful Websites page.
