Basic Citations

For this project, you will need to use a basic MLA citation. The purpose of a citation is to let your reader know where you found your information. Sometimes you can use a citation in someone else's paper to find an additional source. 

Everyone at St. Andrew's has access to NoodleTools, which can be very helpful with your citations. Click the link, click "log In," enter your SAES email and click "sign in with Google". You may need to register if this is your first time using NoodleTools. Please come see Dr. Waugh for help with NoodleTools!
