This guide is the starting point to help you find library databases, search tools, and reference sources for comparative literature and linguistics topics.
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.
Zotero will automatically generate bibliographies and format your research papers in any of hundreds of styles including MLA, APA, Chicago, and Turabian. Zotero is easy to learn and has exciting features.
If you have questions about setting up or using Zotero, check with a librarian or check the library's Getting Started with Zotero Guide.
