Learn how to correctly cite, or credit, your sources.
Whenever you use information from a book, film, article, or any source in your papers or presentations, you will need to credit, or cite, your sources. Failing to do so may be considered plagiarism, a form of academic dishonesty.
Always double check any citation formatting you get from a library database or citation generator. You are ultimately responsible for what you turn in.
While citation generators may not always create a perfect citation, they can be useful when you're first compiling your list of citations. Always double-check citations made by a generator for accuracy and formatting, or ask a librarian for help.
