MLA citation style

OWL (Purdue) Citation Guide

OWL header

OWL resources will help you learn how to use the American Psychological Association (APA) citation and format style. This section contains resources on in-text citation and the References page, as well as APA sample papers, slide presentations, and the APA classroom poster.

Citation Management Tools

Citation management programs allow you to collect, organize, cite, and share references from articles, books, websites and more.

GVSU students and faculty will have access to RefWorks through 2014, but not after that. We recommend Zotero as an alternative.




Zotero is the only research tool that automatically senses content, allowing you to add it to your personal library with a single click.


Mendeley is a free reference manager and academic social network that can help you organize your research, collaborate with others online, and discover the latest research.
