Style guides, like this one compiled by the Office of College Communications to address common concerns among writers and editors at Brockport, provide a set of standards to use when you are not sure how a word, term or name should be spelled, punctuated or referred to. This guide provides consistency so your readers won't be distracted from your message by variations in style.
