When you quote, paraphrase, summarize, or otherwise refer to the work of another, you need to cite the source, using either parenthetical documentation or a footnote. Some of the most commonly cited forms of material are listed here; for other types, please consult the appropriate style manual available at the Library’s reference desk.
Consider using RefWorks to keep track of your sources and to quickly format in-text citations and bibliographies.
Each of these citation generating tools is free. You may either export or cut-and-paste the citation into your paper. It is always important to double-check the formatting before submitting your paper!
RefWorks is an online citation management program that allows you to import citations from many of our databases and format them into any style you choose. To use RefWorks, you will need to create an account. You can do this from the log on screen. Please contact a librarian if you are using RefWorks from off campus and need the group code.
