Creating Your Bibliography

A statement from MIT Libraries on why we cite our sources: To show your reader you've done proper research by listing sources you used to get your information. To be a responsible scholar by giving credit to other researchers and acknowledging their ideas. To avoid plagiarism by quoting words and ideas used by other authors. To allow your reader to track down the sources you used by citing them accurately in your paper by way of footnotes, a bibliography or reference list.

You can use Bibme, an electronic citation generator, to create your APA style citations.
