Are you baffled by how to cite your sources and why it is even necessary? This short workshop will clear up the confusion and help you understand the fundamentals of citation, as well as the particular expectations of the MLA, APA, and Chicago styles. Librarian Tolonda Henderson will discuss both print resources (books, journal articles, etc.) and digital resources (web pages, etc.).
The Logic of Citations: Understanding MLA, APA, and Chicago Styles along with Citation Chasing & Cited Reference Searching, is a part of the Logic of Citations 1 Workshops Series. This series will be available to the GW community in real time and via WebEx.
