If you have done research that required a Works Cited or Bibliography, you may be wondering about the difference between giving attribution and providing a citation for a source. Whether you must give attribution or cite it as a source in the Works Cited/Bibliography, depends on your purpose.
For example, if your purpose for using an image is to visually enhance your presentation or project, then you would give attribution. But if you are using an image to support an argument or to provide evidence, then you would need to cite the source of the image both in-text and in your Works Cited or Bibliography.
See the HCC style guides for more information on how to cite sources.
