Citation Help

If you are using the Digital Library, almost every database you access will provide you with a Cite or Citation option.  Clicking on the Cite or Citation link will usually give you the correct citation for the database that you are using.  You always need to double-check your formatting, which you can do by checking Purdue's OWL or the handouts on this page.
