Engineering: Citation Help

Style Manuals

Citation Help Sites

The library has many citation/publication style manuals in print, below are several sites we like for citation help.

Communication Center

Writing help is located in the Communication Center, on the first floor of the library. When you come by, they set aside one-on-one time to help you. You will be helped by your fellow students, and they even have subject specialists.

LaTeX

Several fields of research require writing with mathematical formulas. To easily, and correctly display these formulas, try  LaTeX. Below is a link to a recommended LaTeX editor, free for use (one author), cloud based and easy to use.

Citation Tools

Called Citation Management Tools, these programs allow you to keep track of the sources you use, and when the time comes, generate the citations and bibliographies in the proper format (which you can select and change at any time!). Getting started with these tools is best done at the very beginning of a research project, but once you've added them to your workflow, you'll end up working smarter.
