All entries should be double-spaced and have a hanging indent.
Entries should be alphabetized by last name of the first author, followed by the initials of the author's first name.
Works with corporate, agency, association, or institution authors should be alphabetized by the first significant word in the name. Make sure to write out the full official name and to not use abbreviations.
Make sure all reference data is accurate and complete.

One of the most important things to remember for APA style formatting is consistency! The APA has not released guidelines on every single type of resource because the possibilities are endless. Just remember to follow the general formats when imputing information about a resource, include as much information as necessary, and be consistent! If you have questions about how to cite a particular resource, feel free to contact the library. Our contact information can be found on the left side of this page.
