While the process of creating citations my seem daunting, your nerves are likely to be calmed when you become familiar with the straightforward mechanics of citing your work. It's a formula, really. An author here, a title there, where the work you used is published over yonder. Just make sure to double check your work, as you already do, because you're a good student.
However, if you're still nervous, or if you want a second pair of eyes on your citations, please contact a librarian. We're here to help! And if you need any additional assistance with your papers, presentations, or citations, please do visit the tutors at the Writing and Multiliteracy Center. Click here to schedule an appointment.
