CDC

CDC Control Data Corporation, a US-based manufacturer of supercomputers, intended primarily for scientific and engineering applications. It was established in the mid-1950s by a group of engineers including Seymour Cray and for many years led the field with its 6600 and 7600 ranges of computers. It lost ground in the 1980s and began to look to other markets. In 1992 it split into two companies, Ceridian taking the noncomputer business and Control Data Systems Inc, taking the computer products. Control Data Systems now specializes in software and services for client/server enterprise systems and e-commerce.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Modern Language Association

The Chicago Manual of Style

American Psychological Association

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
