Citation ExampleCitations are used to tell your readers where the information in your paper came from—and how they can find it, too. 

Citation formats tell you in which order to indicate a source's information, e.g., author, title, course, page #, publisher, etc., and how to create a page with all of your cited materials (sometimes called a bibliography).

We cite our sources to avoid plagiarism!!
