APA Style for Bibliography

Most social science classes will require you to use APA style to format your in-text citations as well as your list of references. Sometimes you will also be asked to format your paper according to APA style, so be sure to double check with your instructor if you're not sure what you're being asked to do.

  • Main Collection (2nd floor) -- this item may be checked out
  • Reference Desk (Ready Reference, one in the Main Collection (may be checked out)
  • Reserved Readings collection, which can be checked out for 2 hours, in library use only.
