How to cite your sources You need to GIVE CREDIT for the information you borrow from authors (books, websites, magazine articles, primary sources....). This is called a CITATION. All citations make up the BIBLIOGRAPHY. If you don't give credit, then you are PLAGIARIZING, or stealing the information. This can get you in trouble!
