Citation Guides

A guide to citing sources, including how to use the most commonly used citation styles (APA, MLA, and Chicago).

About This Guide

This guide provides a basic overview of creating reference lists in several common citation styles. For comprehensive information on these styles, please refer to the print style manuals available at the Ready Reference Desk, located on the 2nd floor of Mitchell Memorial Library.

If your needed style is not listed, check the "Other Citation Styles" tab for links.

To cite sources in speeches, this guide from USM's Southern Miss Speaking Center will help.
