Writing Help

You can get help from a writing tutor at the Center for Student Success/Learning Services at E-town.

Additional writing help:

Do it right -- give credit where it is due

Write and cite -- if you get an idea or take more than a few words from something that you have read -- do it right -- write and cite.  

Citations are descriptions of articles or books that you have used in your research.   The citations appear in your list of references, or bibliography.  

 It's not hard to find citations to articles you have found in databases.     Click on the CITE icon, choose the citation format your professor has recommended,  and cut and paste the article citation into your research folder.

To format other citations, use the sources below:
