Why Should I Cite Information?

When you gather information about a topic and create a report, you must tell where you obtained the information from.  If you do not, it is considered cheating or plagiarism.  Plagiarism is the use of another person's words or thoughts as one's own without giving credit to the other person.  There are two main ways to create citations for your work: 

APA (American Psychological Association) is used to cite sources within social sciences.  

MLA (Modern Language Association) is used to cite sources within liberal arts and humanities.  

Check with your teachers to find out what form you should use for citations.
