How to Use EasyBib

Citation Overview

There are quite a few different ways to properly cite resources in your paper. The citation style usually depends on the academic discipline involved. For example:

  • MLA style (Modern Language Association) is typically used by the Humanities 
  • APA style (American Psychological Association)  often is used by Education, Psychology, and Business
  • Chicago/Turabian (Professor Turabian, University of Chicago) is generally used by History and some of the Fine Arts

Bottom line: Check with your instructor to make sure you use the style required for that class. And whatever style you choose, BE CONSISTENT!

Why Cite? The point of citation is to give credit to the author of your sources and explain to your professor where you found the information to support the argument of your paper.
