    Citing Resources

    Why do we give the authors credit for their ideas?  Because it is the right thing to do.  Remember, being a positive part of a community and a good citizen means obeying the law.  PLEASE do not plagiarize.

    At GMS we prefer our studetns to use the MLA sytle of citing resources.  Please view this easy to use website for the latest in this MLA process www.easybib.com
