These guides were created by library staff to assist you in citing your sources in APA or MLA style. Always consult your instructor for class-specific requirements for citing your sources.
Whenever you quote, paraphrase, summarize, or otherwise refer to the work of another, you are required to cite its source, either by way of parenthetical documentation or by means of a footnote. Failing to do so constitutes a form of cheating known as plagiarism, which is a violation of the RCC Academic Honesty Policy.
