Citing Sources

When you write a research paper or report for a class, you will need to cite your sources.  Never fear, help is available! 

First of all, here is some help for those who need to know -- Writing a Research Paper (from Purdue Online Writing Lab). For a short tutorial on citing sources and avoiding plagiarism, see IvyTILT, Module 6.

  • Many of our library databases, such as EBSCO or ProQuest, offer help citing the sources you find -- look for the options available when you print or email an article, or sometimes a link will be available onscreen when you are viewing an article. (Be sure to double check what they provide against one of the following tools.)
  • NoodleTools can help you build a citation for any kind of resource you need to cite. (Additional information on using NoodleTools is available in the NoodleTools Libguide.)
