Writing and Citing Help at UR

There are many resources for help with writing on campus. 

For some easy to use guides to citing in MLA, APA and other popular citation styles, try Wisconsin's Writing Center 

The Writing, Speaking and Argument Center can help you at any stage of writing:

Citation Managers

Citation Linker

If you have a citation (journal title, year, volume, etc.) to an article, Citation Linker will check to see if the library has it online. Enter as much of the citation as you have. If nothing is found, try again after removing page numbers and dates.

Even easier, try searching the article title and author last name using the Articles & Books tab.

How the library can help

Citing your work is more than just making a bibliography! This page contains tools that will save you time, keep you organized, and provide a necessary back-up for the work you've done. 

Citation managers like RefWorks, EndNote, Mendeley and Zotero help you track and organize your citations, so that when you're writing your paper, you can easily cite your sources. Citation managers also help you insert citations, create endnotes and bibliographies. 

Need more help formatting or using citations? The River Campus Libraries and the Writing, Speaking and Argument Center can help. Whether you need a quick help sheet, or an appointment with a writing consultant, there are many resources available.
