There are many ways to get help with your citations through the library and beyond. Here are a few good places to begin:

  • Ramsey Library's Citing & Writing page
    • ​Provides a list of recommended writing and citing resources available in the library
  • The Writing Center
    • Provides consultations to help you with both your academic and personal writing needs, and can help refer you to helpful resources too.
  • ProQuest Refworks
    • Web-based citation manager that allows you to create folders of citations, automatically generate bibliographies in all major styles (MLA, APA, Turabian, Chicago, etc.), export them as several document types (Word, RTF, HTML, etc.) and attach related documents to citations. NOTE: First time users of Refworks Classic may need to create a free account. If prompted for a group code, enter the following: RWUNCAsheville.
  • Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL)
    • A large helpful repository of online writing and citing guidance including all the most popular citation styles and many helpful examples of citing different sources.

Additionally, while not 100% perfect, most of our databases and our catalog do include automatic citation generators to help get you started. Often this is found as a 'Cite' button in the individual book or article's record. Google Scholar from the library's homepage is also good at this.
