Citing Your Sources

Use the Highland Works Cited Guide to help you cite your sources.
Remember on your works cited page, your sources should be listed in alphabetical order by the first piece of information.

Some example citations:

Online Searching

Tips for research on the free web:
  • If the source DOES NOT have an author (creator) or an organization, DO NOT use it as one of your sources.
  • The more search terms you use, the more specific your search results will be.
  • Typing in a question will not get you a direct answer -- instead, use various key words to find the information you want.
