Cite Your Sources!

ALWAYS cite your sources!  Now that you know more than you ever wanted to know about copyright, hopefully you realize how important it is to cite your sources.  That can be easier said than done.  MLA, APA, Chicago/Turbian - What form do we use and how do we do it?  Teachers usually have a certain form they prefer or require so the first thing to do is ask.  After that you are lucky - there are online citation tools created just to help you format citations and create bibliographies.  In the box on the right are links to several online citation tools.  These tools can also be found on the MPS Library Resource Centers site under Web tools:
