Assists in Finding Books
This guide is designed to provide an introduction for finding biographies and biographical information using a variety of research tools, either those which CSULB provides, or that are freely available on the Internet.
Citing Your Research
You have several options to help you format your research using proper citation styles.
Many of our databases have citation formatting options:
1). When you get some results from a research database, look for a CITE link. It might show your article in one of several bibliographic formats.
2.) If you decide to e-mail the article, look for a CITATION FORMAT option. You may be able to e-mail all your results in a particular style.
See our Style Manual and Citation Methods Libguide, you can get lots of help there.
Consider using our REFWORKS Citation Management software. A good option if you are going to write a major research paper or preparing something for for publication.
