Welcome to the Citations & More guide! You will find information on:

  • Citation Management Systems
  • Citation Styles and Formatting
  • Additional Writing Tools

If you are seeking writing assistance (content, flow of ideas, grammar, etc.) you can make an appointment with the Writing Center, or submit your paper through the online writing lab for either graduate or undergraduate students. Librarians can assist you with formatting in-text and source citations. 

The APA Dictionary is the preferred dictionary of the American Psychological Association. It is especially helpful in finding out whether words should be hyphenated.
