Using proper citation style allows us to give credit to the creators of the material we are using. It is how we use information responsibly and respectfully. By using citations, our claims and theories become more authorized and credible because we are providing supporting evidence from other sources. Citations also allow us to be honest about our contributions and avoid plagiarism. This guide was created to help you find the information you need to be able to create citations properly, avoid plagiarism, and use our bibliographic citation software, RefWorks.
