Citation Tools

Citing or documenting your sources does two main things:

  • First, citations give proper credit to the author of a source.
  • Second, citations help others to track down the sources that you used for their own research purposes. Accuracy and attention to detail are important.

Always check with your faculty about which style he or she prefers.
