The purpose of this guide is to define the subject of Citations and inform students, faculty, and our community of the many types of resources and search methods available to facilitate study, be it scholarly research or personal interest.
In your academic and professional journeys, there will be cause to use citations. These are simply organized methods of indicating the source of your information. This guide includes the three main methods of citing sources: American Psychological Association (APA), Modern Language Association (MLA), and Chicago/Turabian. If you are in classes, please consult your professor if you are unsure which method they would like you to use.
In addition, this guide includes the method that our UT Dallas Special Collections department prefers if you are citing something from their collections. For additional information regarding Special Collections, please visit Special Collections

Remember to always consult your professors before writing a paper. This chart is by no means exhaustive and should not be taken as the end-all for your citation style. It merely serves as a suggestion if you are given the option of choosing your own citation style.
