Citation Style Guides

MLA 7th ed

The preferred citation style guide for philosophy is the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers, 7th edition. A paper copy can be checked out from behind the Circulation Desk. Ask at the desk and we will get it for you. An electronic, but unofficial, version can be found on this Bedford St. Martin's Research & Documentation website.

 

Writing Help

The Writing Resource Center offers Xavier's students 30-minute writing help sessions in a variety of disciplines. Although walk-in students are welcome, for best results schedule a session for yourself by calling 504-520-6282. The WRC is located in room 106 of the St. Joseph Student Academic and Health Center and it's open from 8:30 am to 6pm, Monday through Friday. Learn more about the WRC here.

 

Welcome to the Library Resource Center!

Successful researchers start their research process early; they develop a plan to tackle their subject or project. The library is here for you. We are open in person these hours, and 24/7 online. Librarians are available at the reference desk, by phone, by chat and SMS,  and by consultation to answer questions, help connect you to resources, and encourage you in your research. Come in and check us out!
