Citation styles

A number of different styles may be recommended when you are writing a paper. Be sure to check your course syllabus or ask your professor to make sure that you use the correct style for your assignment or paper.

The Claire T. Carney Library has some suggestions as starting points for you.  Look at our Citation Help page.


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. 


Keep an eye out for some of the free RefWorks classes that are held at the library.  You'll have a chance to set up your RefWorks account and get pointers on how to create bibliographies like a pro!
