Some of the most frequently used citation styles at UAA happen to be APA (American Psychological Association), MLA (Modern Language Assocation) and CMS (Chicago Manual of Style). If you are asked to cite your sources in any of these formats, you can refer to the abbreviated online style guides found in the Citing Sources Guide on the Consortium Library Website. The style guides are on the second tab called Citation Styles. Remember, when you quote, paraphrase, summarize, or otherwise refer to the work of another, you need to cite the source, using either parenthetical documentation or a footnote. If you are stumped you can always get help from a librarian.
