How to Use This Guide

1. From the menu, pick the type of source that you wish to cite

e.g. Newspaper Articles

2. When the page opens, find the type of citation that you wish to insert

- the reference list records all of the sources that you cite in your paper
- an in-text citation gives credit to an author's work that you mention in the body of your paper

- when you paraphrase a source, you describe the content in your own words

- when you quote from a source, you copy the author's words using quotation marks

3. The template shows you what info to include in your citation and how to set it up

e.g. Author, A. = author's name written as Last name, First initial

e.g. Title of article = article title written in italics

To set up your citation, just 'fill in the blanks' using publication info from your article, book, etc.

4. The examples below each template show you what your completed citation should look like

5. Look at the screenshots and instructions provided to find the publication info for your citation
