Citing Sources and

Avoiding Plagiarism

It is important as you begin your research that you keep track of the source material you intend to reference in your writing. College-level research requires that you credit your information sources faithfully and accurately. Otherwise, you might be accused of academic misconduct.

Fortunately, Madison College Libraries and our materials provide a great deal of assistance when it comes to citing your sources. First, however, you should be aware of the different forms that plagiarism can take, which is what this HOWLER tutorial addresses in detail. For additional questions, you can contact the College's office of academic integrity.

Below are additional links to our research guides that we have created to help with the all-important task of citation.
