Q. My professor wants us to look at the Owl. What is the Owl and where do I find it?
We love the Owl! It's not about birds, it's about research, writing and citation!
It's a great resource that Purdue University put together to help students. That's probably why your professor wants you to become familiar with it. Are you working on citation?

Just click on the citation style you need - MLA, APA and Chicago are listed.
