Citation Information

Where do I get the information for my citations?

  • From the work itself
  • In the library catalog
  • In the research database

When printing a PDF document in EBSCOHost, be sure you have printed both the article and the citation information.

Many of these sources have citation helpers, but you cannot trust that the formatting is correct; always double check it yourself!
