Citing Sources

  • Remember to cite your souce, when either quoting directly or paraphasing.
  • Cite your source whenever you present an idea that isn't your own.
  • Websites must be cited in your notes/bibliography, too; if you cut and paste - or paraphrase - from a website, cite the webpage.
  • When in doubt, cite your source.
