Q: How do I cite a source?


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 click on the title of a result, there will often be a link on the right-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!
