UCC Citation Guides

You'll need to have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on the computer you're using to read these PDF documents. We also have copies of all of these guides-- and more-- available at the Library, free for the taking.

If you would like further assistance, or are wrestling with a citation type not covered by the guides above, you can find more assistance in the style handbooks available in the UCC Library Reference section, or contact a librarian.
