Writing and Citing

Changes to Library services during the COVID-19 service disruption.

The Writing Tutorial Service (WTS) is a service, offered by Carleton University’s Student Academic Success Centre (SASC), that is dedicated to supporting students’  academic writing. The WTS is located on the 4th floor in the Library.

The Library’s Cite Your Sources web page provides a list of tools and guidance on how to properly reference sources that were used to write term papers.

RefWorks is a web-based tool that lets you create, manage, and format bibliographies and papers in a wide variety of styles (APA, MLA,…)
