How to Cite Sources

Conducting academic level research is a process of exploration and learning. In acknowledging the sources you’ve used for your research, you reveal the path you took to land at your conclusion – and give credit where credit is due.

Plagiarism is a serious academic issue that occurs when sources are not cited properly. It can happen intentionally or unintentionally, but can be avoided by understanding when and how to cite your sources.

How to Cite
Identify what style you should use and follow the established citation guidelines:
Review Your Citations at the Writing Center
The Writing Center works hands-on with students to help them become more confident writers. Consult with one of their tutors for recommendations on generating ideas, researching, drafting and revising your work.

If you need citation assistance during finals week, set up an appointment with a librarian or stop by the Research Center during our walk-in hours – 9 a.m.-Noon, 1-5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
