Citing Your Sources

One of the most important aspects of any research project is making sure you are properly citing the sources your information came from. Most courses at George Brown College require students to use APA citation style, but please check with your instructor to ensure you are using the correct citation style.

The George Brown Library has a number of guides and handouts that will help you make sure you are using the APA style correctly. The Library also has an extensive list of examples and how-to instructions for a variety of source types. Here is guide to citing specific fashion sources

And, remember, if you are unsure of how to cite something or need help finding something on the library website, just ask. Ask at the reference desk or get in touch with the library for help, or talk to the Tutoring and Learning Centre (TLC).
