One does not simply "use" a source ...

Citing your sources is one of the most important parts of research. This guide will help you navigate the most common styles for citations. It will also provide access and assistance with citation managers that can help you save, organize, and cite references for large papers and projects. 

If you have questions about plagiarism or citation, your professor is the best place for help. But you can also stop by the libraries for help at the Research Assistance Desk or the Writing + Media Lab.

The links below will take you into the guide for resources on plagiarism, specific styles, and citation managers.
