    Use our two-page Reference List Styles quick guide to reference list styles for the author-date system. This handout, created by WKU Libraries, is based on the most recent editions of the Chicago Manual of Style, the Publications Manual of the American Psychological Association, and the MLA Style Manual.

    You might also want to try our E-book version of the Chicago Manual of Style.

    This guide contains a small selection of the style manuals and writing guides available in Western Kentucky University's Libraries and on the Internet. Additional resources in WKU Libraries may be located by conducting a {Subject} search in TOPCAT, the catalog for WKU Libraries. The search terms to begin with are {Report writing--handbooks, manuals, etc.} for citation style manuals, and {english language--rhetoric} for compositional guidebooks. Additional resources on the Internet may be located by using an Internet search engine. Bear in mind that your professor will likely require a specific citation style for your documentation, such as the APA, MLA, Chicago, or Turabian styles, among others.
