Answer

While the Library will help you research your topic, we aren't able to check your citations. 

The best place to go is the KSU Writing Center.

Many databases, though, have a citation function.  When you detail into a result, there will often be a link on the left-hand side that reads "Cite."  By clicking this link, you will be given a computer-generated citation.  NOTE: Since it is computer-generated, it may not be correct.  Always check your citation manual or the KSU Writing Center before using a computer-generated citation in an assignment.

Also, you can view Purdue's OWL Citation site.  This site offers information on the following styles: MLA, APA and ChicagoThe Sturgis Library also offers many official citation manuals as well as the RefWorks citation management software.

And, as always, please feel free to contact a librarian if you have further questions!
