ANSWER

It's easy! Article citations have already been created for you: All you have to do is:

  1. Look for the "source citation" found either at the beginning or end of the database article. The "source citation" will be presented in modified MLA style. If you need to convert it to APA, use the Citation Tools.
  2. Copy (Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V) the citation into the last page of your paper. If you are using APA style, the header on your last page will be: References.
  3. Reformat your citations on the page: Double space and indent citations, as needed. (See Home tab -> Paragraph box). Arrange citation entries in list alphabetically, by first word in the citation.

This information is provided in a PDF version (at the bottom of the page) for you to save or print.
