MLA & APA Citation Styles
Citation is how you give credit to the people whose words, ideas or images you have used in your work. By citing sources, you create a trail for others from your writing to your sources.
Check with your instructor to verify which style you should use.
(from the Modern Language Association) MLA style
(from the American Psychological Association) APA style
In both styles, you cite your sources twice—once in the text of the paper (in-text citation) and again at the end (on the Works Cited or References pages).
