Library DIY: Citing sources

Get answers to your library and research questions here


Your professors expect you to cite your sources for research papers, projects, and assignments.

Put simply: If you use someone's else's work, give them credit.


From Cedarville's Academic Integrity Statement and Procedures:

  • "The Academic Integrity Pledge is a commitment to live with integrity in all areas of life including the classroom. All forms of academic dishonesty violate this pledge and could result in dismissal from this community."

You can also review your Student Handbook for more on this policy.
