One of the sources used was for the speech on art during the reign of Pharoah Akhenaten and how it differs from previous depictions of royalty is from the Gale Virtual Reference Library. Using the citation tool in this database, the citation was copied in APA format as follows:
The New Kingdom. (2005). In E. I. Bleiberg, J. A. Evans, K. M. Figg, P. M. Soergel, & J. B. Friedman (Eds.), Arts and Humanities Through the Eras (Vol. 1, pp. 293-308). Detroit: Gale.
After reviewing the University Libraries' APA Quick Citation Guide, it was determined that only the first word in the title of an article should be capitalized. The citation was corrected in the reference list as follows (changes in blue):
The new kingdom. (2005). In E. I. Bleiberg, J. A. Evans, K. M. Figg, P. M. Soergel, & J. B. Friedman (Eds.), Arts and Humanities Through the Eras (Vol. 1, pp. 293-308). Detroit: Gale.
To complete the reference list before handing it in, a hanging indent should be applied to this citation, as well as the others.
Citing Your Sources in ANY Style
Once you have gathered all your sources and crafted your speech outline, you need to properly attribute where you received all your information in your reference list.
Most databases have a tool that allows you to copy and paste citations for the sources you discover there. While it is permissible to use these tools for your references, please note that many times they contain errors. A reference list created with these generated citations should be viewed as a rough draft.
Once the rough draft of your reference list has citations from either the database tools, citation machines, or those you are manually constructing, use citation manuals or citation guides to verify the correctness of their format. Ultimately, it is your responsibility to ensure that the reference list you are turning in is completely accurate.
In addition to providing guidance on grammar, the mechanics of writing, and APA style, this manual offers an authoritative reference and citation system. It also covers the treatment of numbers, statistical and mathematical data, tables and figures.
This handbook details how to properly write a paper and cite references in the MLA style. Examples of how to cite all different types of sources are shared. All online MLA citation guides are based on this manual. Copies are available for in-library use in the Reference Collection, and for check-out at the library's front desk for a 5-day loan period.
