Cite Your Sources!

Have you heard your professor say, “Cite your sources.”

You may be wondering: “what is APA?” or “what is MLA?.” We have tools to help you.

Get started with learning about the citation format at the library’s Citation Help Guide. Here you will find information and examples on AJPA, APA, ASA, MLA and Chicago/Turabian.

Another great (even better) resource is the Online Writing Lab at Purdue (affectionately known by your librarians as “OWL”). This is an in depth guide to some citation formats.

If you are jumping into a large research paper or thinking about your senior project, take a look at RefWorks. Create a database of your references that you can organize and then quickly create bibliographies. There is even a tool that works with Word that helps to formats your in-text citations, while building your work cited list at the end.

For detailed tutorials on using RefWorks visit the library’s RefWorks Guide.

Other freely accessible citation generators include:

 

Can’t Find the Article You Want?

Have you come across articles that you want for your paper, but the library doesn’t seem to have it full-text?

In these moments, use ILLiad.

This interlibrary loan service gets you the resources you need for free.

What you need to do:

  • sign up for an ILLiad account
  • Request articles, books, book chapters or other resources you need when you can’t find them in the library
  • Wait for the item to arrive. This takes from a couple of hours to a couple of weeks depending on the item. And whether it can be sent virtually or needs to be sent through snail mail.

What does this cost? It is part of your La Verne experience and is free to you.

Look for the ILLiad icon to have the article information automatically entered into a request form, or access ILLiad directly and fill out a request there. You can request any citation, it doesn’t have to be found in the library databases.
