Overview: The print MLA, APA and Chicago Style handbooks are good starting points when you have specific citation questions, but all three also provide authoritative, online resources where they answer tricky questions and provide additional examples. Occasionally they may even provide guidance about how to cite source types that weren't addressed at all in the print handbook.
