The APA Assistant offers a new model for citing sources in APA style. Rather than a static text display or a fill-in-the-box citation generator, it utilizes a fluid format, creating a question-and-answer experience for students navigating the citation process. The APA Assistant first seeks to discover the need (In text citation or list of references? Book or journal article?), then gives a brief description of how to cite the source, including examples. Built in Google Forms, the APA Assistant can be linked to, embedded into LibGuides, or sent via email or other social media.
