Formatting Your Paper

When writing a research paper, you will always be required to format your paper and cite your sources. 

However, formatting your paper and citing your sources can sometimes be the most frustrating part of writing the paper. But there's help available! After you've finished your paper, make an appointment with the Individualized Learning Center (ILC) on campus. The specialists at the ILC are experts on this topic. 

There are also lots of writing guides available online. Try the online guide from Purdue University's Online Writing Lab (OWL).
