Help - Reference
Unfortunately, the Harris County Public Library does not have the Houston Chronicle or the Houston Press on microfilm and we are therefore unable to provide obituaries. Our neighboring system, the Houston Public Library does have both of these newspapers on microfilm. Like Harris County Public Library, they have an email reference service.
There are several guides online for the different bibliography formats:
- Citation Styles for Online Documents
- A Guide for Writing Research Papers based on Styles Recommended by the American Psychological Association (APA)
- A Guide for Writing Research Papers based on Modern Language Association (MLA) Documentation [PDF]
- Chicago Manual of Style Form Guide
We also have books on the topic. The following are links to our catalog.
