Guides for select citation styles:

APA Citation Guide
(from the OWL at Excelsior College)

The printed version of the official APA guide is available at several U of T libraries in their reference section (a copy that doesn't leave the library/that cannot be borrowed): 

Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (current/7th edition)
Please expand all of the locations listed on this record to see the entire list of libraries that have this book.

Additionally, the APA's website is less comprehensive than the official guide (above) but it offers a good deal of information. See:

MLA Handbook
for citation and overall MLA style guidelines, available online and in print at several U of T Libraries.


UTL page for more information on how to cite, including links to guides for other citation styles (MLA, Chicago, and CSE/CBE).


A citation management tool available at no charge to students at the University of Toronto.
The UTL catalogue and many databases will export directly to Refworks. It can help keep track of your sources and can help create your bibliography (list of works cited) with a few clicks.
Please keep in mind that automatic citation generation tools do occasionally make mistakes, so you should carefully check any bibliography generated by a citation tool/application (check that all nouns that should start with a capital letters have actually been capitalized, etc.)
