Citing your Sources

Help is at hand when you are citing sources in your paper. The library home page in the "In the section" box, click on HELP GUIDES where you will be find a CITING SOURCES link that leads to forms that enable you to key in the information about your source and see how it should be formatted in APA, MLA or Turabian style. See the links below for some of the more well-known online citation helpers.

It's always a good idea to double-check your information, since these formatters are not foolproof.  The library has current editions of major style manuals on hand.

Avoiding plagiarism

Plagiarism is ethically wrong and dangerous to your academic health.  If you use another's words, you must quote and give credit.  If you use their ideas, you must give credit in your reference list.  For clarification, check out the plagiarism site
