Citation Workshops

Why do I have to cite my sources?
Whenever you quote, summarize, paraphrase or discuss someone else's work in your paper, you have to give the original author credit.

The Meyer Library offers citation workshops. The workshops provide information on how to avoid plagiarism, cite sources in the appropriate format and how to create reference pages.  Check back here or on the Libraries' homepage at for workshop dates.
