The best place to go for further help is the OU Writing Center.
The American Psychological Association (APA) Style Blog and the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) can help with APA Style, used chiefly by disciplines in the social sciences.
The Chicago Manual of Style has an online edition. (OU login required)
