Citation Styles Print Page


This guide was created to give you a quick reference on how to properly use in-text citations, foot/endnotes and format bibliographies, based on different citation styles. Along with examples of citations, are lists of books available at Golda Meir Library and also links to valuable online sources.

The purpose of a bibliography (also called "references" or "works cited") is to list the resources you used to write your paper. In an effort to reduce plagiarism  there has been an increased emphasis on citing sources. The main criteria for bibliographic entries are that they:

  1. Contain enough information for readers to locate the materials.
  2. Are presented in a consistent format.
