Style guides for footnotes and bibliographies
Proper citation is important for all scholarly work. Style guides, or style manuals, provide detailed information about how to use a particular citation style for various media formats. The above menu will take you to selections of citation style guides. The electronic guides do not include all the rules and formats of the citation style; the printed style guides have more rules and examples.
For a general introduction about creating bibliographies please consult the SPARK tutorial. The SPARK tutorial provides concise information on citing sources, citations and bibliographies, citation styles, citation management, annotated bibliographies, tips for bibliographies, and a resource called “What is common knowledge?”.
