When citing sources for your paper you will use the citation style your professor assigns. This page provides links to several style guides, as well as information on RefWorks, which allows you to create a personalized bibliographic database.
RefWorks is a web-based bibliography and database manager that allows you to create your own personal database by importing references from text files or online databases. You can use these references in writing your papers and automatically format the paper and the bibliography when you are ready.
You must create a personal account from a computer on the UMass Dartmouth campus network or login via the Library's proxy server if you are off-campus, but after that, the program can be used from any Internet connected computer.
