The examples provided are the most commonly cited types of sources such as books, articles in journals, magazines & newspapers, and miscellaneous sources including conferences, web pages, media & other electronic resources.
There are two forms of citations: the notes-bibliography style [used more in the humanities] and the parenthetical citations-reference list style [used in most of the social sciences]. The list of sources used in the bibliography style appears to look more akin to the MLA Style while sources in the reference style are more similar to APA Style. The examples in this LibGuide are the parenthetical citations-reference list style.
