Citing Sources

The primary reasons for citing sources in a research paper are to give credit to the authors whose work you have drawn upon and to allow readers to track down your sources, should they wish to do so. 

There are many style guides for formatting citations and creating bibliographies. See the box below for tools to help you format citations and bibliographies. Materials found in Hoya Search have a citation link at the bottom of the catalog record, which allows you to create citations for items using a variety of styles.
