How to Cite a Source on Your Bibliography

Remember you need to give credit to the person who provided you with the information you use on a research project or informational writing piece.  We have worked together in the library to cite our sources from a book, an printed encyclopedia, and an online encyclopedia.  If you used any resources to find information for your research, you must cite them!
