Works Cited Page
You may have heard of a bibliography before - a Works Cited page is a detailed list of the sources you used in your paper.

This page lets your teacher know where the information you used in your paper or project came from.

A works cited page is a big part of avoiding plagiarism.
Basic Formatting
• The first line is even with the left margin
• The second line is indented 1 tab
• Double space within and between each citation
• Put citations in alphabetical order

For a Book
For a Magazine Article
For a Website, Including an Article from an Online Database
What is plagiarism?
Plagiarism is presenting someone else's work as your own. According to the Purdue OWL (Online Writing Lab), plagiarism can come in many forms:

buying, stealing or borrowing a paper
hiring someone to write your paper
copying someone else's words without using quotation marks
using ideas from books, magazines, articles on the Web or other people without giving credit
Sample Works Cited Page

Cite and number images as you use them. For example:
1. Moyan Brenn, Books (photograph), Oct. 16, 2011. On Flickr. CC Attribution. Accessed on Feb. 10, 2015. Flickr. Creative Commons.
2. James Morley. World War II Short Stirling Bomber Taking Off (photograph), January 1, 1940. On Flickr. CC Attribution. Accessed on Feb. 10, 2015. Flickr. Creative Commons.
Search for images that are labeled for REUSE. This means that the creator of that image has given permission for their material to be used publicly.
These notes are numbered and include as much of the following information as possible:
