  • Citation generators are error-prone, so be sure to proofread! Double-check spelling, capitalization, and punctuation to be sure the official style (MLA, APA, etc.) required for your assignment is followed.
  • Style manuals can be confusing (i.e. what does it mean to be "paginated by volume"?). For assistance, consult your instructor, the Writing Center, or a reference librarian.
