We all know to give credit where credit is due, but some of us may be unsure of how to do so. Citing sources can be an easier process when you have some basic knowledge and some helpful tools. We have created a brief video covering the basics of citation including avoiding plagiarism, formatting citations, and finding the citation information needed for different types of sources.

We’d like to suggest two convenient citation tools to help you organize your sources; both tools help you compile a list of sources, format them into a bibliography for any citation style, and create in-text references or footnotes within your paper.
- EndNote Web is available for students, faculty, and staff. Learn more about using EndNote Web.
- EndNote Desktop is available for students, faculty, and staff. Users must install on their own computer. Learn more about using Endnote.
After careful consideration of utility, cost and usage, Gordon Library has decided to phase out access to RefWorks over the next several months. Our user community is better supported through the EndNote and EndNote Web citation management solutions suite. Access to RefWorks will continue to be available until Summer 2013. Your citations can easily be transferred from one resource to the other. Please view this guide for easy instructions on Converting References from RefWorks. Additionally, the library will hold several fall workshops to assist people with the transition from RefWorks to EndNote or EndNote Web.
