Check with Your Instructor
Librarians can help you locate the right resources for your research tasks, including style guides. Many librarians can even provide some citation instruction. For the following questions, however, you should check with your instructor:
- Which citation style should I use?
- Is this paraphrase is too close to the original language?
- Is this an accurate summary?
- Is this citation correct?
- Is this bibliographic entry correct?
