Citation Help

When you use the words, ideas, or creations of someone else, cite them. To make it easier to keep track of your sources, try a citation tool like Zotero. Not sure how to properly format your citations? Citation styles (MLA, APA, Chicago) give you detailed guidelines. The citation style you use will depend on the discipline, journal, or course for which you are writing.

Using Sources

Creating Annotated Bibliographies with Zotero

Only 2 styles automatically format annotated bibliographies:

APA 6th edition (annotated bibliography with abstract)

You may need to add these styles to Zotero (choose "get additional styles" under Edit – Preferences – Cite tab)
