    I have a question regarding APA references and the formats.

    When you are quoting a reference that was found in one of the Regis databases, do you need to reference the entire string of the URL, or does the database name suffice?

    Second question is in regards to quoting the reference within your paper.

    If you found a quote within your reference source that referes to another reference, do you quote the main reference source or the secondary one?

    Thank you for the help!

    How do you reference a operational manual? My research paper is on Assistive Technology and I have access to devices I hae found their manuals have very good information.

    Thanks for youe help.

    I have found the necessary sources for my research project, but I’m having a little bit of a feeling that to fully understand what they’re saying, you need to have a PhD. Am I the only one with this feeling?

    My first question is am I looking at the dates and times my classmates posted through blury eyes? For a second I was impressed at the late hour of study or maybe just thought everyone was a little crazy. Then I noticed the time stated for Sandi’s post above is in the future. Is this something to do with blogs or is the systems clock off?

    On a possitive note, thank you Ami for the question on how to reference a reference with in a reference! This was confusing me too but Tom helped clear this up and I definately agree that it is something to be careful with.

    Thanks!

    Ken,

    The date for each post and comment is reflective of the time where the server is located (where exactly that is you’ll need to ask wordpress.com) based on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) has been adjusted to reflect MST. Don’t be alarmed if the time doesn’t correspond with you’re time zone.
