Citing Sources

Tips and Tricks:

  • Always check your assignment description and your course syllabus to see which citation style your instructor requires.
  • Make sure you write down where you found your quotation or fact, including the page or paragraph number.
  • If you use an idea or a concept from a source, you must cite it.
  • If you use someone else's work word-for-word, it must be placed in quotation marks, AND cited.

For more details on MLA and APA style, hover over the Citing Sources tab, and choose the appropriate style.
