Many of our databases provide you with help formatting your citations according to APA, MLA, or other citation styles. 

In the EBSCO databases (Academic Search Complete, Social Work Abstracts, PsycInfo), when you print, email, or save your citations, you can change the setting from the default "standard field format" to "citation format", and then choose the style you want.


In the ProQuest databases (Sociological Abstracts, Social Services Abstracts), just click the "cite" icon above your item for a citation that you can copy and paste.
