Citation Resources

Consider providing students with a guide for the citation style you want them to use.  Students often have minimal knowledge of citation styles and would benefit greatly from a 'how to' guide.  You may also wish to provide them with information about citation software supported by the University of Toronto.

Library Resources in Blackboard

You will find a "Library Resources" button in your Blackboard course(s) which highlights library resources relevant to your discipline.  Contact your liaison librarian if you'd like to customize this link.
