Cite Your Sources - Feinberg Library Citation Guides

About Our Guides

Our Citation Guides show you how to cite your sources properly. Many different citation styles are used by various academic disciplines, departments, and individual professors. We have guides for the most common styles:

  • Printed versions of the Quick Guides are located conveniently near Reference Services on the second floor of the Library.
  • Complete, published style guides (i.e., the books) are also available in the Library.

Consider using the free Zotero software to manage your books and articles and to automatically create in-text citations and bibliographies for you. Zotero will also allow you to create bibliographies in styles not covered by our Citation Guides.
