CITE THOSE SOURCESGive Credit….Where Credit is Due
Why Cite the SourcesIf you don’t tell where you got your information, youare plagiarizing (STEALING) Essentially, it is like you are lying to your reader. You haveused someone else’s ideas without telling your reader whereyou took it from. How can I avoid plagiarism? Basically, any idea or fact that you received from a source needs tobe cited. Any idea or fact that is common knowledge does not needto be cited.
Works Cited Page What is a “Works Cited” Page? A “Works Cited” page is the namethat MLA gives to a bibliography. It is a listing of all of the sourcesyou cited in the body of your paper. Here are a few things to keepin mind about the “Works Cited” page: The “Works Cited” page is always going to be the last page of your essay orreport. You should type the words “Works Cited” and center it on the page. Each entry reads like one long sentence. What this means is that it doesnot matter where the second line begins in an entry; it begins on the secondline only because you ran out of room on the first line. The second and subsequent lines are always indented five spaces. The sources are listed alphabetically by the first word or name of theentry. This first word or name should be what you use in your parentheticalcitation.
