Citation Help

When you cite your sources, whether they are books, journal articles, a web site, speeches, television transcripts, etc., you will be expected to use a specific format with regard to order and punctuation. There are a number of style manuals, but most literary papers will tend to follow the Modern Language Association's recommended style.    A copy of the MLA Handbook is kept at the Reference Desk in Bartle, Science, and the UDC. An electronic version is available on the web from B.U. Libraries' Citation Help page, which also contains information on APA and Chicago styles.
