How to Format your References List

Citing a Database Article (APA)

APA citations are provided for articles you access through databases (such as Gale Opposing Viewpoints in Context.)  Click the "Citation Tools" button located at the top right-hand side of the database article, and be sure to select APA style citation!

Citing a Website (APA)

Use a citation machine such as Bibme.org to create your APA citation for a website.  Simply select the "Website" tab on the top of the Bibme.org screen, and paste the source website's URL into the search field and click "Find Website."  Add any missing information into the form and click "Add to my Bibliography."
