It is always important to give appropriate credit to the resources used and avoid plagiarism when doing research, writing a paper, or creating a project. It is best to document a resource as soon as notes are taken from a resource or know it will be used for an assignment. There are a variety of ways to document resources, and your librarian can help you choose the way that works best for you.After collecting all of the resources needed for a project, a "Works Cited" page needs to be made and included with the submission. At Lansing Central Schools, we use MLA (Modern Language Association) rules for citing resources in our writing.
