How you cite sources depends on: a) which style you use, and b) what type of source you're citing.
- Ask your professor which citation style they prefer. Commonly used styles include APA, MLA, and Chicago Style.
- Use the database style creation tools (Ebsco, ProQuest, and the library catalog will create citations for sources you choose, many other databases will too)
- Find a citation manual or use a tool like EasyBib (for small projects) or EndNote (for big projects)
- Always check the citations created by these tools to the examples in the citation style manual.
