Begin Research: Make Citations

Make Citations

student with laptop

Your research is done and your paper is written. What else is left to do before you can turn in your assignment?

You still have to document the sources that you used. How do you do this? With CITATIONS!

In this lesson, you will learn:

  • The basic bibliographic information required for any citation, regardless of style
  • How important it is to provide accurate bibliographic information about your sources in bibliographies and works cited lists
  • The common citation style formats of MLA, APA, and CSE
  • NOTE- This module was written for MLA, Edition 7 rules. If you are using MLA, Edition 8, there are a few changes. For example, the 8th Edition no longer requires the inclusion of a place of publication! 

Just want quick access to style guides? We recommend Style Guides/Citations by HCC librarians.
