Writing & Citation Style Guides

Texas State University librarians have created a guide compiling guides regarding different citation styles, including information on the citation style for the Annals of the Association of American Geographers (AAG).

AAG is based on the Chicago Manual of Style

The Alkek Library pays for a citation management tool called EndNote. You can export citation information from our databases to EndNote and then use the system to create bibliographies.  It even has AAG!  You still need to review the citations and make sure they are correct though!

Citation Management

  • Build a bibliography in a variety of formats
  • Import references from library databases and Google Scholar.
