Identifying and Citing Sources
When quoting a text, you must identify in your writing who or what you are quoting—for
example, the text itself, the name and title of a person quoted in the text, the name of an
historical figure referenced in the text, the title and date of a document that runs alongside the
main text, etc. If the meaning of the quote is not obvious, you should analyze and/ or explain
the quote’s meaning and how it helps support your argument.
Unless otherwise noted, it will be assumed that the textbook is the source for your writing. You
should not use outside sources (including web sites). But if you do, you must cite those outside
sources using footnotes or endnotes formatted according to the Chicago Manual of Style:
Failure to place verbatim text from sources in quotes, failure to cite outside sources, or having
someone complete your assignment for you are forms of plagiarism and violations of the
student code. Students who are found to have plagiarized will receive a zero for the
assignment, and no opportunity to redo the assignment.
