Citation Workshop (Just in Time!)

What? Academic Citation Workshop (sponsored by the Mudd Library and the CTL)
Who? All students welcome
Where? Library Room 401
When? This Sunday, May 22nd from 4-5pm

Why?
It’s the end of the term and the paper you’ve been working on for weeks is almost done, but you’ve forgotten where the footnote button is in the new version of Word, or you’ve forgotten how to format that pesky block quote.

If you’re freaking out (or if you’re just mildly curious), walk up the library stairs to Room 401 where Gretchen Revie, Julie Haurykiewicz and CTL head writing tutor Maggie Waz will review some common citation styles, provide helpful tips for embedding and formatting quotes, and point you to resources that will help you finish your paper efficiently.

It won’t take long, but it might just make the difference between a good night’s sleep and a stressful scouring of reference manuals for an obscure citation rule.

Questions?
