We’re here to talk to you about Citation and How to Find Articles for your IA work.

This Primer on APA will help explain the basics of how you’ll be citing your work within a report as well as how to create the “References” list.


Today we’re going to look at the best database, (Advanced Placement Source) within the TDSB’s Virtual Library for your peer-reviewed articles.

Remember that the databases are password-protected and some of the passwords have changed since last year. You will need to be logged into AW to access these resources. Look for the orange Passwords & Info icon in the Virtual Library.

You’ll see this at the top of the Virtual Library page.

We will also review APA referencing as you will need to cite your source for your article. Please reference the following document for examples, specifically on page 2.

Mr. Oster has provided explicit instructions regarding the formatting of tables and graphs on your handout. OWL Purdue is also another good source for reference help, if necessary.
