APA Citations

You will be expected to utilize the APA citation styles as you complete your coursework. For introductory information and examples, please view our APA Citations guide

If you need access to the full style guide, Newton Gresham Library and SHSU-The Woodlands Center have copies you can use. Also, the APA has published an APA Style Guide to Electronic References that is accessible online and provides pretty much all the information you need when citing electronic information.

Distance and Interlibrary Services

Take advantage of our Interlibrary Services to get your hands on almost any article or book you need for your research, even if our library does not have access. As we deal with COVID-19 and library renovations, you can request Interlibrary Loan books or books from the main campus, and have them delivered directly to your home.

To request a book we do not own, a book from the main campus, or an article we do not own, simply log in to ILLiad using your SHSU credentials and fill out the appropriate form. Please be sure to verify your contact information and mailing address. 

For more information, please visit our Interlibrary Loan page and COVID-19 Response page.
