TTUHSC Bibliographic Tools
It is the policy of the TTUHSC Libraries to familiarize and to provide patrons with
tools with which to create bibliographies and to perform related bibliographic formatting.
The Reference Librarians do not evaluate citations for accuracy. Patrons should consult
current citation style manuals, their instructors, or publishers for correct formatting.
