Citation & Bibliography

Why Cite Your Sources?

Using proper citation and including a Bibliography/Reference list with your work shows that you’ve taken your information from reliable sources.  Also, to avoid plagiarism (taking credit for other people’s ideas or work), you must give written credit for sources of information you use for your work, whether from print or online sources. This includes  text, graphics, works of art, compositions, symbols, sayings, cartoons, excerpts, and quotations.
