Need help citing sources?

It’s important to give credit where credit is due, and that starts with proper documentation of  your sources — where you get your information. There are several different styles of citation, and your teacher will probably tell you which one to use.

This site, compiled by Long Island University (see, we cited our source!), lists the major citation styles and gives examples of each.

Remember, failure to cite sources is called plagiarism (boo, hiss!) and it has serious consequences.
