The Right Thing to Do

Citing sources is an important part of academic culture -- you're building on the contributions of others while seeking new discoveries, knowledge, and understanding.

  • Always cite sources when you use someone else's ideas or work
  • Failure to do so constitutes plagiarism, a violation of UHCL's Academic Honesty Policy, even if done unintentionally

EndNote Citation Management Software

EndNote is on library public computers. Students, faculty, and staff who wish to install the program at home can download it from the first link below (enter your library barcode number and last name to authenticate).

Some Free Online Citation Builders

Always verify output with the latest edition of official style manuals.

  • NoodleBib Express was among the most accurate of free builders tested in 2011 by H. F. Chang, Oklahoma State Univ. Library
  • Mendeley and Zotero are citation manager programs like EndNote and offer storage, organizational, and sharing options

If You're Missing Citation Information

Do you need to cite a source but lack complete information or aren't sure where you found something? Try searching all you do have (author? title? a source name?) in Google Scholar. If that doesn't help, contact us.
