Tips for Citing

  • Assume that everything will need to be cited.
  • When reviewing sources, get the full reference information immediately, rather than waiting until you write your paper.

  • Be sure to take accurate notes, including quotation marks around any exact quotes and the page numbers for those quotes.

  • Find out ahead of time which citation style you need to use.
