APA Style

First - Why do you have to cite in the first place? North Carolina State University has  created this great introduction.

Penn State University Libraries, along with other institutions, has created guides to help you with the citation process.

There are several copies of the APA manual in the library, and it is part of the HathiTrust Emergency Temporary Access. 

Be Sure to Identify Your Source Correctly!

Even if you find a scholarly journal or a newspaper article online make sure that you follow the guidelines for an ONLINE OR ELECTRONIC ARTICLE in APA.

If you source is a website, make sure you provide more than just a VALID link to the site. You want to be sure that your readers can track down the site even if the link becomes broken.
