The resources listed below can be particularly helpful. The Africana Studies Department at Hamilton College generally recommends using either the Chicago Manual of Style or the MLA style for citations. Ask your professor if he or she prefers a particular citation style, and consult the library's guide to citing sources for additional resources.
RefWorks is a research and citation management service you can use to create bibliographies, format footnotes, and organize information that you import from the library's databases and other online sources. Footnotes and bibliographies created with RefWorks are only as good as the information you import. You will still need to edit some references. For help with that, refer to the library's guide to citing sources.
