Citing Sources

When you quote another person's words or borrow their ideas (even when using your own words), you MUST cite your source.


To Cite means to give credit to the person who came up with the original idea. In a school setting, there are specific ways to cite information that you come across. The most popular styles that are used to cite are called MLA, APA and Chicago Manual Style.


REMEMBER, Sources are cited differently depending on the source (i.e. Book, Website, Journal etc.) you got it from. Each style has a special way of citing these different types of sources.

Make sure to ASK YOUR PROFESSOR in order to find out what style you need to use when you write.
