Why Cite?

citation reflects all of the information a person would need to locate a particular source. "A quotation from or reference to a book, paper, or author, especially in a scholarly work," (Merriam Webster) 

We need to give credit to the authors of the work that you are using. You don’t want to take information made or created by someone else without citing your sources.
