Where to begin?!

Sometimes just having a few citation examples from a Style handbook isn't enough to help us understand what kind of academic information we have on our hands, or how to cite it properly.  

Here's a chart that helps to narrow down the information you need to consider as you begin to form any citation.

Once you have decided what type of source you have, you can determine how to go about citing it. For more information on how to format your citations, visit the Library's Citation Guide.
