Answer

The Reference staff at Mahoney Library can direct you to resources that will help create your bibliography.  You may come to the Reference Desk to acquire the MLA or APA citation manuals.  Additional reference manuals such as ASA, AMA or Chicago are in the 808 section of Reference.  There is also the "How to Cite Your Sources" link available on the Mahoney Library Page which includes style specific help guides, links to sites that provide examples of references and paranthetical texts, and to citation search engines such as Bibme and Zotero.

A Reference Librarian can show you how to select your articles from a database and copy and paste them into your Word Document. The EBSCO and ProQuest databases are among those that will format your references in a preferred bibliographic style. 

The library also subscribes to RefWorks.  This web-based research manager will allow you to directly export your citation from a database or a catalog and store them in a folder created by you.  You will be able to format your selection in a preferred citation style and create a bibliography.  For further instructions on how to use RefWorks, make a one to one appointment with a Reference Librarian.  The instructor may wish to request a library instruction session for their students by completing the online form.

The Academic Skills center is available to review and edit your list of references.  This Department is located on the upper level of the library.  You may schedule an appointment with a tutor by contacting x4325.
