The Right Thing to Do

Citing sources is an important part of academic culture -- you're building on the contributions of others while seeking new discoveries, knowledge, and understanding.

  • Always cite sources when you use someone else's ideas or work
  • Failure to do so constitutes plagiarism, a violation of UHCL's Academic Honesty Policy, even if done unintentionally

Citation Management

EndNote citation management software is available on the library's public computers. Students, faculty, and staff who wish to install the program at home can do so from the EndNote Download guide link provided below. The guide includes:

  • detailed instructions for Windows, Mac, and iPad
  • tutorials and help
  • information about free EndNote Web
  • and more

Always verify output with the latest edition of official style manuals.

  • NoodleBib (now NoodleTools) Express was among the most accurate of free citation builders tested in 2011 by H. F. Chang, Oklahoma State Univ. Library
  • Mendeley and Zotero are free, downloadable citation management programs that offer storage, organizational, and sharing options
  • All support APA, MLA, and Chicago/Turabian styles

Do you need to cite a source but lack complete information or aren't sure where you found something? Try searching all you do have (author? title? a source name?) in Google Scholar. If that doesn't help, contact us.
