Citations allow anyone who reads your work to find the items you used in your research. The key to a successful citation is to provide all the information needed for your reader to find the book, article, or other item you are citing. Citing builds your credibility and shows that your ideas are shared by other experts in the field. Citing scholarly, peer-reviewed sources lends extra credibility to your work. Citations avoid plagiarism! Citing your sources properly gives credit to the original author.

Caution: LibGuides will not support hanging indents or first line indents so make sure to check with the appropriate handbooks for formatting.
