Citation Resources

There are several reasons why it is important to cite your sources properly:

  • It is important to give credit to the person or group who spent the time researching and writing in order to provide that information.
  • It allows your reader to find the source later if she wants to read it herself.
  • Citing experts gives credibility to the argument of your paper.
  • Proper citing indicates that you did a thorough job researching your topic.

The following resources can help you properly cite your sources. If you need assistance, please contact a reference librarian.

Style Manuals

Choose a citation style appropriate to your subject matter. If you are unsure which style to use, consult your professor.
