Cite Your Sources

When you use information from books and websites, you must give credit to those authors.  This is called "citing your sources." You may use an online citation tool to help you format citations and create bibliographies.  In the box on the right are links to two online citation tools that you may use to help you. Or, you may simply write up your own Bibliography.

Websites to Help You

  • BibMe
    Automatic bibliography maker. Either searches for source and creates citation or allows you to input the information to create the citation.
  • Easy Bib
    Automatic bibliography and citation maker for MLA format.
