This guide was designed to provide you with assistance in citing your sources when writing a paper.
There are different styles which format the information differently, so select the tab for the style you need and take a look at some examples.
This guide will help you create a bibliography or works cited page for your research papers. There are many different styles. It is best to check with your professors to figure out which one to use. Most of your classes at Wentworth use the Modern Language Association, or MLA style.
Check with your professor to make sure you use the required style. And whatever style you choose, BE CONSISTENT!

"The purpose of a research paper is to synthesize previous research and scholarship with your ideas on the subject. Therefore, you should feel free to use other persons' words, facts, and thoughts in your research paper, but the material you borrow must not be presented as if it were your own creation."

RefWorks is a web-based bibliography and citation manager. It allows you to import references from text files or online databases, create and automatically format your bibliographies in any available style, and export them to another document.
You will need to create an account the first time you use RefWorks. Accounts can also be created to share with others for group projects; you can have as many accounts set up as you wish.
