AVOID PLAGIARISM…OR How to make a perfect Works Cited


  • Remember…all good researchers cite any ideas they borrow from other sources.

  • Learn how your teacher wants you to reference your project or assignment.

  • Make sure you keep track of all resources you may want to cite or reference. We have blank Bibliography sheets you can use to keep track of the important information as you research. Just ask at the counter.

  • Use a notesheet for every major resource you use. These are available in the trays on the counter.

  • Use APA Style for this assignment. All the detail you need to complete a correct Works Cited is on the school’s website:
