Online Help Guides for APA Style
With the exception of the 2-page TAMU Libraries handout and the American Psychological Association website, the other links to online style guides are fairly similar -- just choose one that is easiest for you to navigate and understand.
Citation Management Software
Citation management software helps you collect and organize citations or references that you want to keep track of for your research projects. Search a database, select your citations, export to your account, then organize in folders for various projects. You can even create a bibliography in your choice of "styles" such as APA, MLA, Chicago, Turabian, etc. and you can share your folder content with others (great for group projects).
