Cite as You Write

You’re about 1/2 way through the first summer session – and that means that you’ve probably completed a literature search and are starting to compose writing assignments. Don’t leave citing your sources until the end. Cite as you write – so you won’t have to hunt down an elusive resource you put into quotes – but forgot where you found it.

The Citing Sources Subject Guide is a good place to start. There are tabs for each of the major citation methods used at GRCC (APA 7th ed., Chicago 17th ed., MLA 8th ed.) , along with links out to easy-to-use guides like The Owl at Purdue.

Need more help? Librarians are glad to take a look at your citations and make suggestions. Send your citations to Ask-A-Librarian, along with a note about what citation method (APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.) you are supposed to be following. Not sure what citation style/format you are supposed to follow? Check your syllabus.
