Why Cite your SOURCES?
Did you know that the PRIMARY reason we create a citation of our sources is to allow our consumers (readers, watchers, listeners, etc) a way to find the original work we referenced? Because of this, we need to make it as simple as possible for others to find our referenced materials. The two most commonly used source documentation style guidleines are: Modern Language Association (MLA) and American Physchological Association (APA).
MLA is used for the humanities: language arts, cultural studies, and other humanities disciplines.
MLA is currently on the 8th styleguide version published in 2016.

APA is most commonly used for the social sciences and science fields.

Everything you need to know about how to create a list of sources can be found Purdue University's Online Writing Lab: Purdue Owl
Online citation creators will autogenerate your citations and create anMLA, APA, or Chicago Style bibliographies. Make sure to know the ALL citation rules (see Purdue Owl above) before using an autogenerator since they are not foolproof!
