Citation Basics

Citing your sources is an essential part of college research which allows you to acknowledge and use the works of others in your essays, research and assignments. Remember, any information (including ideas!) that you did not create yourself must be credited using a citation method - the most popular are APA and MLA. If you are not sure, remember to ask your instructor which citation method they would like you to use!

For more information, see the Citing Sources research guide.
