Here's an example of "citing a source." In a paper about dogs in the workplace, you might find these words from an article by Amber Lee Letsche in the Fort Worth Business Press:
Notice the information in parentheses at the end of the quote. It is giving the reader some information about the source of these words, namely that the author is Letsche, and the words were found on Page 1 of her article.
A reader of this paper on dogs in the workplace can then turn to the bibliography at the end of the paper to find more information about the article that contained these words.
Here is how it would be listed in the bibliography:
Letsche, Amber Lee. "Dogs at Work." Fort Worth Business Press
15.41 (October 11, 2002) : 1+. MasterFile Premier. EBSCOhost.
Lewis-Clark State College Library, Lewiston, ID. 16 July 2003.
That is what "citing sources" is all about!
