The first thing you need to figure out is what style are you supposed to be using for your citations (MLA, APA, Chicago, etc.). As a student, your instructor should tell you which style to use for work in that class. If your instructor has not done so, you should probably contact them to ask. Once you have determined which style you need to use, there are a number of resources available to help you create citations in the various styles. On the library website under “Reference Resources and Databases,” you will find links to Noodlebib Express and Duke Libraries “Assembling a List of Works Cited In Your Paper.”
The document from Duke Libraries is an excellent guide for creating citations and assembling them into a works cited page. Noodlebib Express is a tool that creates a citation for you based on the answers to questions you provide and the information that you fill in.
The library also has print copies of citation manuals for APA and MLA and some other styles. In addition, you can ask contact us for help about a specific citation in person, via email, or via chat.
