Research & Study Skills

Citations and Authoritative Style Manual Links
Students and writers engaged in research must cite works and sources for any material that was borrowed and/or quoted. It is a simple matter of respect for the creative labor that an individual or a group employed to share knowledge. To do otherwise is to engage in plagiarism, a serious academic offense. Links for the four leading styles or schools of citation are included below: MLA, APA, ASA, and Chicago-Turabian.
Study skills include the knowledge set needed to navigate a variety of academic situations, combined with the internalized tools and behaviors that promote personal success with learning. If these skills were not fully learned in elementary or secondary school, a student should actively seek to aquire them in college. See the links below for helpful guidance about study skills and their mastery.
