Citing Sources: Welcome

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.

A Word about RefWorks

RefWorks is a way to cite, collect, manage and organize your research papers, as well as collaborate with others. ​It is Iona College Library's preferred citation management tool. 

  • It helps you create MLA, APA, Chicago, etc. reference lists. 
  • It allows you to import citations directly and indirectly from Library databases and research websites, such as EBSCO, ProQuest, and WorldCat.
  • It enables you to share citations and lists.

For important detailed information and videos on using RefWorks, please visit the RefWorks guide.
