Citing Sources:

This guide presents selected resources to help you with citing sources.

When writing a paper, it is extremely important to give credit when using information  from books, magazine and journal articles, websites, and other information resources through a bibliography, works cited page, or footnotes. A number of citation styles have been created for use in different fields of study such as MLA, APA, Chicago Style, ACS, and others. Check with your instructor if you are unsure about which citation style to use. The above tabs will provide information on how to cite your sources in a bibliography or works cited page using the citation styles used most frequently at Southeastern.
