Citing Sources

Cite While You Write...It's That Easy

Our goal in the library is to support all researchers in identifying, finding, evaluating, and managing the resources needed for scholarly pursuit. All too often, students, in particular, consider citing and managing sources as what comes at the end of the research process. We understand students, entrenched in finding, analyzing, and evaluating sources, do not always stop and take careful notes.

Students think they can find it again later when polishing their draft. However, this practice is neither efficient or smart. Careless note-taking will NOT excuse you of plagiarism at GU-Q.
