You’re writing your paper (which you just know will get an A!) but you have some questions regarding citations and plagiarism:
What information do I include in the parentheses at the end of quoted sentences?
How do I format a quoted paragraph of more than a few sentences?
How do I create a Works Cited/References/Bibliography page in ALA/MLA/Chicago/Turabian format?
If I change the words, do I still have to cite the source? (short answer: YES)
Don’t worry! The library can help!
We’ve created a page with help, information, and resources (even videos!) along with a Student’s Guide to Avoiding Plaigiarism web page.
But that’s not all!
We even have links to print and online style guides on our Citing Sources web page.
Want even more?
