Below there are links to six different resources. Please create complete citations for each of the resources using the style requested. For the first three, you must create these citations from scratch (no citation engines!). Use the laminated quick guides, Hacker, or one of the other citation manuals at the desk. For the last three, you may use a citation engine or other citation creator (just make sure you double check these against the correct model!). To the left is the refresher on best practices for assisting with citations that was shared last semester.

Questions about citations frequently cross our desk, because the precise formatting and specific rules often confuse and intimidate students, particularly when they have to move between styles. We would like you to be comfortable with the basics of citations in the three major styles common at Hope. As citation questions get more complex, please do refer to a librarian, if possible, because there are a lot of little rules to dig into at times, as well as some interpretation involved.
Important! Both the Research Desk AND the Klooster Center handle citation questions (this is a common question, so we should both be able to help!). You may get referrals from the Klooster Center for help with citations if they did not have time to work on them during their appointments. Do the best you can with these, and refer them to a librarian when you are not sure.
The three styles common at Hope are: MLA, APA, and Chicago/Turabian. Occasionally we will get questions about another style, like CSE or ACS, but these are rarer. Keeps us posted if you are seeing other styles come up more frequently, so that we can provide more resources.
