5. How Do I Cite My Sources in APA Style?

For helpful ways to properly citing your sources in the style of American Psychological Association (APA), visit the library’s How To Cite Sources: APA Research Guide.  Here you will find information for accessing print copies of the APA’s Publication Manual; links to tip sheets, The Purdue OWL, NoodleTools Express, and similar websites; and a number of online tutorials explaining how to apply the APA citation rules.  Finally, be sure to check the citations created using the auto-cite functions of the databases, EasyBib*, or any other online tool.  These tools are not always completely accurate, so be sure to compare the citations created using these tools to the information provided in the Publication Manual.

* Please note, the full functionality of EasyBib is currently only available to on-campus users.  Off-campus users may want to consider using NoodleTools ExpressCitation Machine, or similar tools.
