ENGL 331: Cite Sources

This is a guide to support contextual resource presentations in ENGL 331.

Why cite?*

✔  To Become a More Mature Thinker

✔  To Recreate a Sense of Lively Debate and to Establish Intellectual Context

✔  To Give Credit Where It’s Due

✔  To Lead Us to Further Research

When you cite a source, you show how your voice enters into an intellectual conversation and you demonstrate your link to the community within which you work. Working with sources can inspire your own ideas and enrich them, and your citation of these sources is the visible trace of that debt.
