Whenever you quote, paraphrase, summarize, or otherwise refer to the work of another, you must cite the source.
Your citations are like your paper's family tree. They show the difference between the ideas of others that you are responding to, and your own originality. Citation helps to clearly document the research you have done on your topic, and is very useful as you evaluate evidence and respond to the work of others.
If you have any questions about citations, you can use the Ask a Librarian Chat for help.
Use these tools if you need to quickly create 1 or 2 citations.
Remember, it is always your responsibility to double-check that your citation is accurate!
