Citing Sources in APA Format

The APA citation format was developed by the American Psychological Association, and is often used by students taking courses in the sciences and social sciences. If your instructor has asked that you use APA format, and you need help constructing citations, go to the Library's "Citing Sources" Web page for assistance.

The NCC Librarians and Learning Center staff have collaborated to bring you a concise guide to using APA format, which contains examples based on the databases you will find at the NCC Libraries.
