APA-MLA citation workshop slated at NSU's Vaughan Library

The John Vaughan library reference department, in collaboration with the Writing Center-Tahlequah, presents a workshop on "How to Cite Resources Using APA and MLA Style."

The American Psychological Association and the Modern Language Association utilize referencing styles accepted in academic prose and scholarly publishing. The APA makes reference citations using parenthetical referencing within the text. MLA style uses footnotes or endnotes and a bibliography.

The workshop is Sept. 14th, from 2-3 p.m. in Room 105 of the John Vaughan Library. Presenters are master tutors Tiffany Biggers and Cat Jennings of the Writing Center-Tahlequah.

"The Writing Center is limited in space, so the John Vaughan Library is happy to provide the venue for such an important workshop that should be beneficial to many students," said Sarah Brick Archer, assistant professor of user services for the library. "Students are frequently frustrated by trying to create citations in the proper format for their papers, and we want to make that process easier for them. The library is here to help students succeed with research and writing."

All are welcome but seating is limited. To reserve a seat, contact Sarah Brick Archer at (918) 444-3267 by noon, Sept. 14.
