Avoiding Plagiarism

Contact the library for reference help

If you happen to be working on your paper in the library and you have a question about how to cite or reference one of your sources, stop by the reference desk.  There are helpful style manuals on many of the major citation formats, (see examples below,) as well as helpful reference librarians to guide you through the process.

If you are away from the library, you may contact a librarian for help by online "chat", phone call, or email.
