St. Patrick Academy Library: How to Cite

Cite Resources

The citation is an essential part of the resources we use in our paper or assignment. The purpose of the citation is to give credit to the author for creating a credible source for us to use. A citation can help us to prevent plagiarism and add a valid argument in our writing by providing evidence. It can also help the reader to find out about the sources that they might want to read about. Below are some tools that could help you to cite our sources properly and effectively.
