Try the library's online guide to Citation Formats for help with the three most popular citation styles: APA, MLA and Chicago.
A number of popular databases, including those provided by EBSCOhost and ProQuest, include tools that will provide a citation. Look for a button labeled "Cite" or similar and pick the style you need. You should always check these citations for accuracy.
For help with less common styles and source types, the best resource is the official citation manual. You can ask at the Research Help Desk for assistance finding and using citation style manuals. The Writing Center can also help with formatting and incorporating citations into your writing.
