when to cite
Here are a few resources that will help get you started:
- words (quotations, phrases, sayings, etc.)
- thoughts or ideas (summarizations and paraphrases)
- audio or visual material (photos, videos, screencaptures, powerpoint slides, social media content, audio recordings, etc.)
You need to cite sources in your papers to avoid plagiarism and allow readers to track down the source content. But how should you format the citations and bibliography?

Reference citation for a quote or paraphrase cited in your source t hat you also want to cite.
Citing a source that you found in another source is known as using a secondary source.
Your in-text citation should include both authors: the author(s) of the original source and the author(s) of the secondary source. For example: (Habermehl, 1985, as cited in Kersten, 1987).
