      Why Give Credit?

      You need to give credit to sources for several reasons:

      • To let your readers know how your views, "agree with, disagree with, or modify the views of published experts in the field."

      • By citing your sources, you are providing your reader with additional information--such as books, articles, and websites
        --on the topic you are writing about.
      • "By listing the author of a quotation and providing a page number, you're telling the reader, 'If you don't believe that this person really wrote this, you can look it up for yourself.'"
      • "It's the honest thing to do."
