How Do I Cite Sources?

Visit the Writing Center (located in room Donahue 238) for a range of services to help your writing including handouts on how to cite sources.  Below are a few online resources.

  1. Most of the library databases can cite the articles for you in the appropriate format (MLA or APA). Simply select the appropriate format when printing the article or e-mailing it. There are icons or links on the top of most of the online article pages (when the article is displayed) and they look similar to these:

    Print E-mail Save print email print/citation
    Alternately, there may be an icon or link specifically about citing that looks like this: CiteNow!

  2. Create a works cited list online using EasyBib in MLA or APA format. You will be asked to register with a username and password of your choosing for your account. If you are not on campus, you will be asked to first login to the HCC databases before you can register with NoodleTools.

  3. For citing print and electronic sources from a variety of citation styles including the MLA and APA visit Research and Documentation Online by Diana Hacker.
