Work Cited / Bibliography Help

Citing Sources

  • Citing sources for a bibliography or Works Cited – MLA, APA, Chicago (Duke University)
  • Citing sources within your paper – MLA, APA, Chicago (Duke University)
  • EndNote – available through the Web of Science.  To access, go to the Databases A-Z link under QuickLinks on the  homepage.  Click the link to Web of Science.  On the top navigation bar, you’ll find a link to “My EndNote Web”.  Registration is FREE!  Click “Register” to set up your personal account.
  • Citation Generators can be useful when you need to create a bibliography.  The individual citations must be copied and pasted into a Word document. NOTE:  Be sure to proofread your citations for accuracy, completeness, and correct formatting!  Although citation generators can be quite reliable, they are not error proof.  This includes those found within library databases, like Ebsco.
  • Knight Cite – a project of the Hekman Library, Calvin College is a user-friendly tool that provides citation assistance for MLA, APA and Chicago styles.



What is Plagiarism? 

  • Using someone else’s words or ideas as your own.
  • Not giving proper citations when using someone else’s words, ideas, data – even when rewritten, summarized, or paraphrased.
  • Using your own work for multiple assignments without the consent from the instructors. 

Avoiding Plagiarism - From Purdue University's writing lab, an entertaining guide for students showing rules and examples in tabular format, including a very useful "Contradictions of American Academic Writing."
