Just in Time for Finals: Citation Workshops Are Here!

Even if you’re a decent writer, sitting down to complete a paper is tough. For one thing, distractions are everywhere.

Many students – and even professionals – find reasons to procrastinate. One step youLibraryTutorHours can take is to make an appointment with our writing tutor, who is available in the library four days a week. Walk-ins are welcome.

In addition to help with style and grammar, a tutor will help you with
accountability; that is, if someone else knows you’re supposed to be working on your paper, you’ll be less likely to slack off.

Ha! It’s funny ’cause it’s relatable!

Still, good writing isn’t enough to ace a research paper. You can write the most convincing argument of all time, but it won’t mean anything if you haven’t backed it up with well-documented support.

That’s where citations come in.

Nooooo! Not the c-word!

No one likes citations. Luckily, we’re here to help! We’ve already had success with one citation workshop, so we’re adding two more!

On Wednesday, April 26th from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and on Tuesday, May 2nd from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., faculty and staff members will be available in Scott Community College library’s quiet study room to help you with your citations.

Whether you’re using the Modern Language Association’s (MLA) citation method or the American Psychological Association’s (APA), someone will be able to assist you and answer questions. Just bring your laptop or flash drive (computers will be available) with your works cited page, reference page, or just a list of your resources.

Haven’t even found your resources yet? Come on in anyway! In addition to our in-house collection, our extensive shared catalog is available to all current SCC students with a library card, and our electronic resources are available on any device, on- or off-campus. Check out our many posts about how to use these electronic resources.

Don’t let finals get you down. Let us help you finish this semester strong, so you’ll be all like:
