Cite Your Sources

There are several reasons to be meticulous about citing your sources:

1. To indicate that you have done good research.

2. To give credit to other people for their words and ideas. Even stuff you find on the internet was written by SOMEBODY! Give that somebody credit with a correct citation.

3. To give your reader a straightforward map back to your source material.

Use the tools below to help you create complete and correct citations.

Please note that you should check your EasyBib and BibMe citations against an authoritative source, such as the OWL (Online Writing Lab) from Purdue University or the MLA Style Center.
