Welcome to the Boulder County Campus Subject Guides Dashboard! Your librarian has created subject-specific research guides that will help you determine which resources are best for your research assignment. We will be adding new guides to this page throughout the year so check back frequently to see what's new!
Citation: Details about one cited source.
Citing: The process of acknowledging the sources of your information and ideas.
In-Text Citation: A brief note at the point where information is used from a source to indicate where the information came from. An in-text citation should always match more detailed information that is available in the Reference List.
Paraphrasing: Taking information that you have read and putting it into your own words.
Plagiarism: Taking, using, and passing off as your own, the ideas or words of another.
Quoting: The copying of words of text originally published elsewhere. Direct quotations generally appear in quotation marks and end with a citation.
