Tips for Citing Sources

Be sure that your sources are cited accurately and in the correct format.

  • When you use a book, copy down all the important information: title, author(s) or editor(s), chapter if applicable, publisher name and place, year, edition or volume number, and page numbers. REMEMBER YOUR NINE CORE COMPONENTS, as mentioned in your assignment.
  • Most article databases have a "Cite" or "Citation" option in the Tools box. Copy this information to a document or email it to yourself (remember to go back and format it correctly).
  • Get citations as you go--don't do double the work by needing to look it up later.
  • Stumped? Ask a librarian for help.
