Other Helpful Library Guides

USC Upstate librarians have created several Library Guides to help educate you about plagiarism and how to avoid it, and how to properly cite the work of others in your papers and projects.  Please visit the links below to learn more about how to properly cite and credit your work.

Things to Consider

The Senior Seminar in History allows students the opportunity to learn how to choose an appropriate historical topic, identify relevant primary and secondary sources as well as evaluate them, conduct research, and write an original work of history.  

This LibGuide is designed to assist students in finding appropriate resources for their final assignment.  These resource lists are by no means exhaustive, and at any point in the research process reference librarians are available to help further refine search techniques.

Additional resources available on campus include the University Writing Center (call 503-5883 for an appointment) where students can have papers reviewed for unintended plagiarism, review documentation styles, and check for patterns of grammatical error.  The University Writing Center does NOT proofread papers.

Citation Information Quick Links

Need a quick way to find out how to create a particular type of citation?  These online resources have loads of examples for all types of citations, and include examples in all the major citation styles, including APA, MLA, and the Chicago Manual of Style.  As always, if you are unsure of how to create a particular citation, the University Writing Center is available as is Ask-a-Librarian.
