If you’re like most people, when it comes to writing a research paper and citing your sources, you’re probably not always sure what you need to cite and what you don’t. So, we’ve put together a new web page on this very topic. Covering copyright and plagiarism, and common knowledge and proper paraphrasing, we’ve tried to provide you with straightforward explanations, along with links to useful examples.
This page also links to Resnick Library’s guide for APA citation style and our newly updated MLA style guide, which is also available in a printable .pdf file. We’ve expanded it to include formatting examples for images, and audio/video, and interviews. Let us know what you think. – Amy
