Style Manuals

Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association.

6th ed. Washington, DC: APA, 2010. (Ref BF76.7 .P83 2010)

This book presents APA style requirements and provides examples for all types of information sources.

The MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers.

The style manuals give the most thorough information about how to cite sources properly, but you can also use CheckCite to see examples for citing sources in papers, speeches, and PowerPoint presentations, especially if you are working from home and don't have a style manual.
