This LibGuide connects you with resources to assist with citing your sources. Click on the side tabs to explore style-specific resources.
Sometimes you are asked to respond to a point of view given in a particular article or other source. Other times, you are asked to include a certain number of sources in your paper. Here are some questions to ask yourself as you think about incorporating sources into your paper.
Remember that your sources can play multiple roles in your paper. Ask yourself how this source fits in with your topic or your position. Support your claims by giving as much context as possible to your readers. Avoid simply providing a source without including information about how it relates to your topic or your thesis. Why should your readers care about this source you cite?
