Research and Writing

The Library has a variety of guides and tutorials to help you with research and writing on our Get Help page.

Make sure you evaluate all information sources carefully, whether from the library, open internet or other sources.

In addition, these other resources may be useful:

  • OWL has a variety of writing and research guides
  • Grammar Girl is a great resource for understanding the mechanics of writing

Citation Guides

Access the Reg Erhardt Library's APA Citation Style Guide online.

If you don't see what you need in the above guide, The OWL at Purdue will probably cover it. 

Many of our databases and e-book providers will also give you formatted citations in the style of your choice. These citations are not always perfect, however, and should be checked against a guide or with your instructor.

Note: Always check with your instructors about their preferred citation style and other assignment criteria.
