The RRU Library can help you to locate the citations for specific items; in fact, Discovery and Google Scholar both offer a cite tool (see below screenshot).

However, it's important to understand that while it's a helpful starting point, these citation tools are not perfect; it remains your responsibility to ensure your citations are correct.

For questions about the correct APA Style formatting for in-text citations and references, please search WriteAnswers by keyword (e.g., "journal article"). If you're unable to find the information you need, schedule a 30-minute appointment with the Writing Centre.

If you're looking for help with a citation manager, the RRU Library recommends and supports Zotero. Our Zotero Help Guide provides guidance for downloading, installing, and using Zotero. For additional help, schedule an online appointment to learn how to use Zotero.
