Please contact the NCC librarian or drop in to see a writing tutor for help with citing your sources.
Most of the NCC Library's online databases, as well as its eBook collections, provide you with ready-made citations (MLA or APA). Cut and paste them into your document. Check citation formatting in Purdue's Online Writing Lab (OWL) and add in-text citations, too.
Please check with your NCC instructor to verify which style you should use -- MLA style (from the Modern Language Association) or APA style (from the American Psychological Association)
In both APA and MLA styles, you need to cite your sources twice; each citation should appear in both places!
shortened citations in the text of the paper
- AND -
full citations on a separate page at the end of the paper
TIP: It's efficient to do them in reverse order -- first, the full citation and then the shortened form.
