Writing tutors.  Stop by the Learning Commons in the library or email jennifer.mccauley@ursuline.edu to schedule time with a writing tutor.

In the library.  Library staff, student workers, and librarians can offer help using the APA manual and other citation guides. We are not writing tutors or faculty, but we are familiar with citation tools that are sometimes difficult to navigate.

Your instructor.  Style guides offer just that - guidance. If you remain uncertain about a particular point of style or citation even after consulting authoritative resources, check with your professor.
