Information about how to create in-text citations can be found on the library's website in the Help section under Citing Sources.
For information on MLA citations including in-text citations take a look at:
Citing sources MLA style with example citations (following the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers, 7th ed., 2009)
On page three of this handout is the following regarding in-text citations:
"Provide in-text citations for quotations, paraphrases, statistics, or summaries from all sources. Provide the author’s last name, and use page numbers. If no page numbers are available, omit them. If the author is named, only a page number (if available) is needed. Example: to computer expert John Smithson, “People will create Millennium Mania” (23). If the author is not given, provide the name and page number Ex: computer expert claims “people will create Millennium Mania” (Smithson 23)."

For information on APA citations take a look at:
