When do I cite a source? Do I cite a source even if I have not used a direct citation? How do I know when?
Write Your Works Cited Page First!!! Why? What if there is not an author? Do I have to write the entire title each time? "Overview of Fashion." Arts and Humanities Through the Eras. Ed. Edward I. Bleiberg, et al. Vol. 4: Renaissance Europe 1300-1600. Detroit: Gale, 2005. 89-90. Gale Virtual Reference Library. Web. 13 Feb. 2013. While some still considered it vain and immoral to wear elaborate clothing, the production of cloth and clothing emerged as an important employer during the Renaissance (“Overview of Fashion”).
What if I’m quoting a quote that was quoted in another source? Two Options: Find the original source of the quotation. Then you will add that source to your Works Cited page. This is ideal! Cite the source where you found the information. Identify the original speaker and then quote the source in parenthesis.
History Already Happened What does this mean for my writing?
