Library Resources

Citing Sources
The UGA Library keeps Citation Style Guide web pages with examples of how to cite the most common types of resources using the most common styles (APA, Chicago, MLA, and more!)

Citation Software
The Library also provides free access to software that can help you manage your references.  Try RefWorks if you want a web-based solution for managing bibliographies, and EndNote if you need more sophisticated options but don't mind always using the same computer.  For more information or to set up a training session with a Librarian go to http://www.libs.uga.edu/liaison/endnote/training.html

Help from a Librarian
When in doubt, ask a librarian!  For information on different ways you can reach a UGA librarian for assistance (in person, online via chat, by email, phone, etc.), go to http://www.libs.uga.edu/askaquestion/index.html
