Fall 2017, M. Barresi

Citing Sources


  • Remember to cite your souce, when either quoting directly or paraphasing. In other words, 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.


  • Connect to online versions of Turabian, APA, MLA Style Guide, etc. from this page:  Citation Guides & Style Manuals  
  • Or use the Citation Builder (NCSU Libraries), which offers quick citation help for Chicago, MLA, APA, and CBE styles.


RefWorks is web-based software that helps researchers gather, manage, store, and generate citations and bibliographies.


Zotero is another web-based option for managing your citations and for creating bibliographies.
