Citation Help

Citing sources... every student's favorite part of the research process! There are several style guides "out there" for many different academic disciplines, but two that are commonly used in undergraduate studies are MLA & APA.

Below are links and pages to (hopefully) help explain the rules of these two styles. Please come see a librarian and/or consult the handbooks for MLA & APA, which can be located in most libraries and at the SCC reference desk.
