Library FAQs



APA Citation Style consists of two parts :

1. In-Text references throughout your paper
2. References Page at the end of your paper.

In your paper, whenever you quote someone else, paraphrase their writing, or otherwise use information from an outside source (i.e. not your brain) you need to tell your readers where that idea came from. This is done in short parenthetical notes. For instructions on this, click on the In-Text tab above.

At the end of your paper, you will make a list of all the sources you used to write the paper. Every source that you cite in-text must be on this list. For instruction on how to create your list, click on the References tab above.
