When completing a writing assignment on a research topic, it is important to put what you have learned into your own words. To copy someone else’s work and turn it in as your own is plagiarism, and plagiarism is bad, bad, very bad! In addition to avoiding plagiarism it is important to give credit to the people whose work you have used in your research. This important part of the research process is called citing sources. A list of citations at the end of your written paper is called a works consulted listing or bibliography.

Here are two easy to use sites that will help you cite your sources:
