Citation and Writing Help

Citing Sources

Citations, which appear in footnotes, endnotes, and/or a bibliography, let your readers know where you got your information. Like movie credits, citations give credit to the people whose work you used to write your paper.
Most databases have a Cite This button (it may just look like a double quote: ") that will generate a citation for you. It's always a good idea, however, to double check the formatting for errors. The guides below provide useful examples to follow.


Citation Management Tools

These tools help generate citations, manage your sources, and keep your research in order.
