Resources curated by your liaison librarian to help with finding information

Citations

A citation is the method that is used within a document, to give credit to the original author(s) and are done within the document. A reference list is usually found at the end of the document. This list (bibliography) contains details like: name of author and work, date published, page number, and if applicable, volume and issue number, place of publication, DOI (digital object identifier), and website link.

The professor will tell students which format or style manual to use when for the research paper, presentation, or poster. This website provides examples in APA and MLA styles by providing examples on creating reference lists, how to format a table or figure, how a specific document is to be formatted, and other document creation topics.

Other commonly used ones are seen listed here. If another type of citation style not found on this list, contact the STEM librarian.

The Writing Center

Need Help with writing your paper or citing? The Writing Center is here for you! You can visit with a tutor in the Writing Center office, drop-in at the library, or even consult a tutor online. 

In all sessions, you must be an active participant in your session by asking and answering questions. Our approach is to teach students writing skills and editing strategies; we do not edit papers for students. Our hope is that students will learn enough about writing and editing to make our assistance unnecessary in the future.
