It is important to properly document sources in academic writing. The reference librarians can help with some of the technical aspects of MLA, APA and Turabian Style. We also provide access to web based resources and make recommendations of other helpful tools and websites, some of which you will find below.

Q: I have a paper due tomorrow and the library is closed; what do I do?
The majority of the library's resources are available 24/7 from any internet-connected computer.
Commentaries are in both the reference section and in the tall shelves downstairs (call numbers 220-228). Unfortunately, most of the commentary publishers have not made their products available online as eBooks so you will have to visit the library to access commentaries.
