Why Cite?

For details on how to cite, see the

 Citation Style LibGuide!

Writers must be credited for their work and their writing. 

Not to do so is to plagiarize.

Plagiarism is defined as intentionally or unintentionally using the ideas, language, or work of another without acknowledgement that such material is not one's own.

Whenever you quote, paraphrase, summarize, or otherwise refer to the work of another, you are required to cite its source.

At CCAD, the most common citation styles used are MLA (used in English classes), Chicago/Turabian Notes and Bibliography (used in art history), and APA (American Psychological Association, used in the social sciences). There are style manuals for each style that you can use.

The databases often provide the citation information for the articles in all formats. Look for the Cite buttons in databases or ask a librarian where they are.
