Citing Sources

This guide provides basic information on how to cite sources correctly in the major citation styles, and, therefore, avoid plagiarism. The style you use usually depends on the academic discipline in which you are working. The guide also introduces you to RefWorks, our citation management tool. Consult with your instructor to make sure that you use the appropriate style.

Contact a librarian if you have any questions. We are always happy to assist you.
