Finding Citation Information

Online Databases (EBSCOhost, ProQuest, Films on Demand, eBooks): Most online databases accessed through CGTC Library provide citation information for each article already formatted into APA or MLA style. See the examples below to find citation information for your recommended databases.  Be sure to review your citations for accuracy in spelling, punctuation, and formatting (line spacing, indentation, etc.).

Library Books: Need to cite a book from the library? Check the full entry in the library catalog for copyright and publication information to complete your cite.  

Print Journals and Newspapers: If you are citing an article from one of the print journals available at the CGTC Library, you will need to get information for your works cited page from the journal or newspaper itself.  See a member of the library staff, if you need any assistance.

Videos: Need to cite a video from the library collection or Films On Demand?  Films On Demand provides citation information in MLA and Chicago style formats (see example at the bottom of this page).  For information on APA Format, check the APA Citation Style Guide at the Purdue Online Writing Lab.  Most videos on Films On Demand will follow the basic format for a motion picture.  To find the producer and director of the film, you will need to watch the credits at the end of the film.
