Finding library resources for Anthropology

What citation style do you need?

American Anthropological Association style guide (AAA) has been discontinued as  of September 2015.  AAA now follows the Chicago Manual of Style (Author-Date format).   See also:  Chicago Manual of Style - quick guide

Primatology uses APA Author-Date. 

If your professor has chosen neither of these styles, check out the Student Success Centre's guides to citing.

​Note for online sources you need to add the DOI or stable URL to end of the citation in the Reference Cited list.
