Citations & Bibliographies

This guide provides a brief overview of the purpose of citation and major citation styles.

Whenever you use someone's ideas in a paper or project, it's important to give them credit by citing them. This short video will show the different ways to use other people's ideas in your projects and papers.

Make sure that you are using the appropriate citation style for your course work. More information about three main citation styles can be found on the tabs to the left of the screen. No matter the style, citations always have two parts. There is the in-text citation that identifies where you used someone's ideas in your work, and the full information about the source you used in the bibliography of your paper or project.
