MLA, APA, Chicago, Government Documents... Citing sources can be confusing until you get the hang of it. This guide is here to help.

Integrating sources is about having a conversation with others. You don't just use sources to provide quick facts. You use them to support your ideas and argument, which means engaging with them. A good way to get into the habit of this is to use the They Say/I Say templates, inspired by the book They Say / I Say by Gerald Graff and Cathy Birkenstein. I've borrowed these templates from California State University, but we also have the book in the library if you want to check it out.
