Citing Sources

Citing sources is an important part of your research as it documents what sources you have used in writing your paper, gives credit to the author's work, and gives the information needed to identify and retrieve the cited sources.

Citation Styles

This course uses the Chicago Manual of Style. Please go to the Chicago Manual of Style Online to consult the style guide.

Citation Management

Citation Management tools allow a user to collect, organize and retrieve citations and insert properly formatted footnotes or citations into a paper. These tools also create a formatted bibliography using one's preferred citation style.

There are many different citation mangers available including: Zotero, EndNote, and Mendeley.

For more detailed information please consult the LibGuide, Citing and Citation Managers.
