SOCL 280: Global Culture & Society (Germann Molz): Citing Sources


With RefWorks, you can import references from Holy Cross databases to create your own personal list of references and bibliographies for your papers.


There are many different "styles" you may choose from when citing sources. MLA (Modern Language Association), Chicago, and APA (American Psychological Association) are the three most common styles. Your professor will probably tell you which style is he or she would like you to use. 

The following quick guides for citing your sources are from Diana Hacker's Research and Documentation Online.
