Citation Help

All sources should be cited in a bibliography or reference list and in the body of the text of a research paper. Citations give credit to the the author as well as enable other researchers (or your instructor) to locate the cited item.

For definitive guidance on how to CITE your sources, you should consult the print manuals or an organization's on-line guide such as the style guide for the Society for American Archeology (SAA) or the American Anthropological Association (AAA) Style Guide.
