Why cite?

To avoid plagiarism, any information you use that comes from another source, including books, journal articles, databases, or websites, must be cited according to the style guide specified by your instructor.  Included in this guide are separate pages for the different styles that may be consulted for your research papers and projects.  Also included are directions for how to use citation generator tools available in most of the library's databases.
