You will find links to other resources, or strategies for limiting your search (by date range or type of resource.) 

Citing Help

There is citation assistance available in Points of View Reference Center. Unfortunately, it is not correct APA formatting. Here are suggestions for how to format correctly. Please note the use of capitalization and italics.

For the Overview, Point or Counterpoint:

Issitt, M. (2016). Transgender restroom use: Overview. Retrieved from Points of View Reference


For articles:

N.C. approves changes to controversial "Bathroom Bill." (2017). Church & State, 7(5), 26.

Please note:

NEVER include a web address that includes the term, ezprozy. It is a search string that is unreliable.

Additional information about APA formatting is available under the tab, Citing in APA format (7th edition).


Need help creating a poster?


The Curriculum Materials Center (CMC) has a computer-based die-cutting machine called Cricut (pronounced cricket) that cuts letters, numbers and shapes. It is available to help William Paterson students, faculty and staff make professional looking posters, bulletin boards and displays. Use of the Cricut is free, however, you need to bring your own paper. 

CMC Assistant, Patricia Moore, is happy to help anyone learn how to use the Cricut. Her hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 8 am to 4 pm. Contact Patricia to make an appointment,  973-720-2174, or via email at
