Time needed to complete this module: 15 minutes

Learning Objectives: 

  • Students will synthesize information from multiple sources to develop arguments.
  • Students will integrate visual and multimedia sources into research and creative projects when appropriate.

Once you’ve found sources of information and evaluated them for appropriateness and quality, you’ll need to find ways to incorporate them into your writing when appropriate. This can take the form of in-text citations, which can include quotes and paraphrasing of information that isn’t common knowledge.

This tutorial will help you decide when each type of in-text citation is appropriate in certain circumstances.
