Cite all Materials

Remember, every image, video, song, piece of information or idea THAT IS NOT YOUR OWN needs to be cited in your project!

•Our databases, eBooks & Discovery Videos give you citations which you can easily copy & paste into your "Works Cited" or credits slide.


•You can use a free online citation generator like EASYBIB.COM - http://www.easybib.com (or ask Ms. Gaffney or Ms. Fauver) for help in making citations in MLA format for any websites, books, songs and images you use for your project.

•Remember that "GOOGLE IMAGES" is NOT a source! (It is a search engine or tool for finding images.) If you use Google Images (or Bing, etc.) to find pictures, you must cite the website where each image actually exists on the Web. DO NOT CITE GOOGLE IMAGES AS A SOURCE!
