Information Literacy: Cite sources

Why cite sources?

Attributing and documenting your sources gives credit to the author and helps the reader find your research sources and information.  It also provides evidence for your arguments and adds credibility to your work. It demonstrates the authenticity of your information and pays tribute to the author's intellectual property.  Proper attribution and documentation helps you avoid plagiarism.
