Why Cite?

Citing Resources

While you are at Butler, you will use articles, books, journals, websites, and many other works for your research assignments. Citations are how you give credit to the authors of these sources.

Choose your citation style:

  • APA - Psychology, Biology, Sociology, Business, Education
  • MLA - English, Humanities, History

Always double check the citation requirements on your assignment to ensure you are using the correct citation style. When in doubt, contact your instructor.


                            NoodleTools is a citation manager, which helps you format and organize your citations. It is available free of charge to students currently enrolled in at least one Butler course.
