Instructors are the final authority on how they would like you to cite your work. Librarians will refer to the established handbooks when necessary to determine how to cite a particular resource.
Library databases include citations for each individual resource. Once you select an item from the results list and open it on your screen, you should be able to find a link that will say something like Cite, Citation, etc.
Citations from databases are great but they are not always perfect. You will need to carefully look over the citation to make sure that everything is included and correct any capitalization or punctuation errors. A librarian will be glad to help you with any citation questions.
Make sure that you choose the correct format from the options listed. PSY classes typically require that you use APA format. However, you should always check your assignment or talk with your instructor if you are not sure what format should be used.
