Citing Sources

To learn about citing sources using MLA, APA, Chicago, or CSE/CBE style, please visit the UNC Libraries citation tutorial. The tutorial contains up-to-date information on what to cite and how to cite it in each of these styles. It also features a citation builder that will help you properly format citations for your reference list if you are using one of these citation styles. If the citation tutorial does not answer your citation question, please visit the reference desk of Davis Library, the Undergraduate Library, or the Health Sciences Library and consult the citation manual for the style you are using. If you are using another citation style, such as AMA or Vancouver, please see your librarian for more information.

For information about avoiding plagiarism, please see the Writing Center’s handout on plagiarism or schedule an appointment to talk with one of our tutors. For information on UNC’s Honor Code, which includes a section on plagiarism, please see the Instrument of Student Governance.
