he Purdue OWL (Online Writing Lab) is the best source online for formatting MLA and APA citations. Do not trust online citation generators or the formatting built in to word processing programs: it often screws things up.

The Purdue OWL has a sample works cited page (how to format sources at the end of your paper) here.

Lehman’s ACE Center located in Old Gym 205 offers help with citation formatting and every stage of the writing process from brainstorming/formatting ideas to a final check. They work by coaching you through the writing process. You should see them early in the process if you’ve traditionally struggles with writing or been out of school for awhile and bring your assignment sheet with you.
