When you use other sources for your papers or assignments, you are expected to cite them in order to give credit to those whose work you used. If you don’t cite the sources, it’s considered plagiarism (see Plagiarism link).  Before you begin citing your sources, ask your instructor what bibliographic style or format he or she prefers to use (MLA, APA, Chicago, etc.). 

Citation Generators

When citing your sources, you have the option of building them from scratch or using one of the many citation generators.
