Getting help with APA:

Barbara Huff (writing tutor):, or stop by her office in the Learning Commons.  It's always best to plan ahead and make an appointment to meet with a writing tutor!

Your instructor.  Style guides offer just that - guidance. If you aren't sure about a particular point of style or citation even after consulting  authoritative resources, check with your professor.
