In your Literacy courses and throughout your academic career you will need to cite your sources. Citing sources shows where you found your research, gives you credibility, and gives credit to the scholars that did the research you are using.
There are many different citation styles and the style you use depends on the subject. For Literacy you will probably use MLA 8th edition, but always check with your instructor or your course syllabus!
MLA 8th Edition has specific requirements for citing sources. You can find this information and incorporate it yourself or you can schedule a meeting with the AU Writing Lab for assistance! For more on general citations, view the video below.
