Help and Research/Citation Support

***for Winter 2018***

Note that the Librarian and the Library Help Desk can point you to resources for citation, but you are responsible for writing and correcting your own citations.

Please read through the following carefully, and make sure you understand the guidelines for seeking help before you email the librarian.

Make sure you understand whether you need help with research (finding articles, reports, and other information) or with citation (using APA style to cite your sources).

Help for research questions is available:

- Liaison Librarian ( - email answers, face-to-face appointments
- Library Help Desk - online chat, face-to-face (main floor, Archer Library, drop-in during opening hours or make an appointment)

Help for citation questions is available:

For students in some sections, there will be a Success Seminar focused on citation for e-scan 1 (check your UR Courses page or syllabus, or ask your prof, if you are unsure whether to attend this):

Tuesday 6 February (5:30) in ED 193


Thursday 8 February (4:00) in ED 230

It is strongly advised that you attend one of these seminars to familiarize yourself with APA citation.

Drop-in sessions will be hosted in the Library where you can ask specific questions about citations and research in your e-scan assignments. Please note these sessions will not cover the basics of APA citation, they will be for answering specific questions about the citations you have already drafted. Also please be aware that the librarian cannot proofread or look over your assignment (for this service, contact the Student Writing Centre.)

Wednesday February 7, 9:00-11:00 and 1:00-3:00, Regina Room (LY 107.32, Archer Library main floor)
Thursday February 8, 9:00-11:00, Regina Room (LY 107.32, Archer Library main floor)
Friday February 9, 2:00-4:00, Regina Room (LY 107.32, Archer Library main floor)

Extra session for e-scan 2:
Tuesday March 6, 9:00-11:00 , Regina Room (LY 107.32, Archer Library main floor)

If you cannot attend the Success Seminar on citation or any of the scheduled drop-in sessions, you can try reaching out for individual citation help, but be aware that help available on an individual basis is very limited:

Library Help Desk - online chat, face-to-face (main floor, Archer Library, drop-in during opening hours or make an appointment)

Additionally, you can email your question to the liaison librarian ( However, priority will be given to research questions, and your citation question might not be answered in a timely or detailed manner.

Tips for emailing about citation questions (that might get a faster answer):
1. Include the citation itself that you have already attempted to create (including the parenthetical reference, if applicable). No attachments, please. Copy and paste the citation(s) into the email message.
2. Mention what resources you used to create the citation (OWL, LibGuide, etc.), and their relevance to the specific problem you are having.

Online guides to APA citation include:
Library Guide to APA Resources
OWL at Purdue APA guide
