number to the bibliography or put the author or source name in parenthesis
immediately following the quote.

|Copying information or copying and pasting from a printed or online source without giving credit is plagiarism. You can use information in other documents to create new, original content, but you must always credit your source(s). When using information for educational purposes it is okay to photocopy or copy and paste material (as long as it's just a small part of the whole article or book) from print or online sources (text, maps, graphs, tables, pictures, etc.), but you must always give credit to your source. Remember, if you do copy and paste text or other forms of information/ideas to use in your own writing, it must be contained in quotation marks to show that it is a quote, not your own original statement.|
