Writing Answers

Sometimes a brief written guide is all you need; below we have a substantial list of material on writing and academic formats. If you want individual help, use the "Book an Appointment" hotbutton, check our Workshop and Drop-in consultation schedules, or call us at 452-6346.

Remember that different faculties have different format requirements for written work; nearly a dozen are in use at UNB.  We have information, both in our physical collection and online, concerning a wide range of academic formats, from familiar author-date systems (such as the APA) to more complicated footnote-based ones (such as the CMS). Be sure to find out which style you are expected to use before you visit the Centre.
