This guide will connect you with library books, articles, and media, external websites and photo resources for identifying your plants, and the information you need to create flawless citations (to avoid plagiarism AND make information findable!).
In the "Citing Examples (APA)" tab above, you will find information and tips on citing your sources for your reference page. Hover over the arrow on the right of the tab for in-text citations.
In-text citations do two things... First, they give credit to the information source, which is the surest way to avoid plagiarism. Second, the in-text citation connects your reader to the entry on your reference page, making your sources findable.
Reference list citation example:
