Citing Your Sources

Citations can sometimes be tricky, but KnightCite is a superb tool to build your citation skills.

We strongly recommend KnightCite for some simple reasons:

  • Create accurate and updated citations
  • They provide a free account to store all of your citations
  • Keep track of all of your project resources (for multiple classes)
  • Export a properly formatted citation sheet (alphabetized and formatted for you!)

Yes, there are other citation generators out there, but they do not encourage thoughtful habits. Use KnightCite!

How well can you assemble a citation? Try these challenges!


Skill Builder II

Now that you have assembled the different pieces of a few citations, can you identify the different types of citations?

Play this game of "Master Blaster," where you will identify ten different types of citations and the resources they come from.

Remember, all citations must have some basic information:

  • Author/Creator Name
  • Title of Source
  • Date of creation or publication
  • Publisher (print resources)
  • Publication city (print resources)
  • URL (websites)
  • Date you found it (online resources)
  • Web or Print

If you are having trouble, feel free to consult citation examples for booksmagazinesimages, and websites.
