Q

How would I cite my lab in ACS format?

Answer

Most citation styles, ACS among them, are not designed to cite informal, nonpublished work, such as a lab report in a college course.  That said, the library subscribes to the ACS Style Manual, accessible from our How to Write a Reference page.  The direct link to the Reference styles chapter is here:

http://pubs.acs.org/doi/pdf/10.1021/bk-2006-STYG.ch014

Check pages 315 and 316 for "Unpublished Materials," particularly under "Recommended Format for Materials Not Intended for Publication."
