Making sure you acknowledge your use of other authors’ works is an important part of academic research. See the Citing Sources page on the UofT Library website; the Using Sources page and the How Not to Plagiarize page on the Writing Advice page of the Writing at UofT website; and the UofT Academic Integrity website. There is also a library guide on Academic Integrity. It is best to ask your professor which style guide they prefer you use. There are several style manuals, but the ones generally preferred by Emmanuel professors are listed below.
