When Should I Cite?
A student should cite anytime and every time she or he use ideas or words that come from any source other than her or his own work.
Students must cite when:
- Referring to ideas that belong to someone else, including theories or opinions.
- Copying the exact words from books, journals, websites, etc. The copied words must be surrounded by proper quotations and concluded with proper citations.
- Using images, graphs, diagrams, illustrations, charts, and maps that someone else created.
- Utilizing a speaker's ideas from a lecture, interview, speech, correspondences, or media sources such as radio, television, or webcast.
