Introduction to the Citation, Style Manual and Grammar Guide

In addition to the resources listed on the above-tabbed pages, Sawyer Library has specific guides that detail the usage of major citation styles used at Suffolk:

If you are using the Modern Language Association (MLA) method for citing your sources, please also consult our Research Papers: MLA Style for Citing Your Sources guide.

If you are using the American Psychological Association (APA) method for citing your sources, please also consult our Research Papers: APA Style for Citing Your Sources guide.

If you are using the American Sociological Association (ASA) style, please also consult our Citing Your Sources - ASA Style guide.

If you are ever unsure as to what term paper format you should be using, Check With Your Instructor!

There are many citation styles, publication manuals, and handbooks for proper English usage that students and researchers in a wide variety of disciplines use. This guide lists a selection of print manuals and online resources that will help you construct and write a research paper and cite your sources. If the print style manual or grammar guide you are looking for is not listed, please consult the Suffolk University Library Catalog to check for it.

The illustration to the right (the cover of a recent edition with art by Maira Kalman) is of one of the many editions of The Elements of Style that Sawyer Library owns. This classic handbook of grammar and usage was first created by Cornell University English professor William Strunk in 1918.  Later, it was revised by  E. B. White (who is best known as the author of the beloved Children's Lit novel, Charlotte's Web).

The original "Strunk" is now available free on the web (but watch out for those pop-ups!)

We have many editions of  the revised "Strunk & White," too.

We even have a related  video set narrated by Charles Osgood!

And, just for fun....If you would like to see Ms. Kalman's rather strange (if delightful) video homage to Strunk & White, click the below picture to take a look at a YouTube Video:
