students-citationsWhen writing papers for your classes, it is important to give credit to the sources from where you pulled your information. Whether you directly quote someone or just paraphrase their ideas, you still must cite the source. Listed below are guides to help you cite your sources in a variety of formats. Make sure you know which citation format your professor wants you to use!


The library has the manuals for APA, MLA, and Chicago/Turabian on reserve. Ask at the circulation desk if you would like to use them!


Not properly citing your sources is considered plagiarism and is a violation of the RBC Student Honor Code. For more information on what information should and should not be cited, read this handout from UC Davis.
