What is Citation?

A citation is a way to give credit to the people whose words or ideas you use.

In the body of your paper, note the sources of your quotes or paraphrases with in-text references. See the tab above for more on that.

At the end of your paper, include a list of your sources in correct citation style.

Follow the General Guidelines tabs for the basic rules for formatting your paper.

MLA Citation Help

Are you using another person's ideas or quoting from the original work itself?

  • Both are great ways to make your points.
  • Both require giving credit to the author. 

Use in-text notation after a quote or paraphrase.

List the author and work on your Works Cited page.
