Citation Guide

This guide provides only the most common kind of references. For all reference examples, please consult the latest edition of the APA, MLA or CSE style manual located in the Library, at the Reference Desk. Choose one example that is most like your source and follow the format.

* When in doubt, provide more information rather than less.
** Punctuation is an important component of each style. Pay close attention to the punctuation in each example.

In addition, there are electronic tools for research and citation management:

  • RefWorks (NJCU Library subscribes to it) - Research management tool
  • EasyBib - Automatic Bibliography and Citation Maker
  • KnightCite

Also, here are some Selected Links to Citation Guides provided by other libraries.
