What are citations?

Citations indicate: 

  • which ideas are taken from others
  • from whom those ideas were taken; give credit where credit is due
  • allow researchers to find, read, and comment on each others’ sources

What are citation styles? They are sets of conventions or rules for creating citations to give credit for what you have quoted or paraphrased. In academia, there are three main styles: APA, MLA, and Chicago. Different disciplines use different styles. The preferred style for Film Studies is Chicago.

You can also ask Brian Vetruba, the librarian for European Studies, for citation assistance. 

Citations Managers

What are citation managers? They are apps that allow you to import citation information from databases and catalogs, save PDFs, and format citations for your research using different citations styles (e.g. MLA, APA, Chicago, etc.). Some managers also allow you to include your own notes.

Common citation managers include Zotero, Mendeley, and Endnote. Many of these are FREE!
