Hi Jamie,

We have lots of resources to assist you with your dissertation. As for a website to use for APA citations, the Owl at Purdue University site provides lots of helpful instructions and examples for constructing citations and formatting papers. However, if you're writing your dissertation, it might be a good idea to download EndNote. EndNote is a piece of software used for organizing and automatically formatting your citations within Word. Here are some resources one of our librarians gathered for using EndNote. EndNote also produces a lot of video tutorials that can be helpful. Here's one titled "How to Use EndNote in 7 Minutes."

As for dissertation writing resources, I would search the online catalog for "dissertations and writing" or "dissertations and research." If you're on campus, you can try searching the subject heading "Dissertations, Academic--Authorship." In case you're primarily off-campus, here are some e-books to help get you started:
