Citing Your Work
For your speech, you will need to include a bibliography or a list of the books, articles, or other publications that you used for your speech. Citing your sources:
Lets your audience know that sources you are using are credible and based on established research, that you didn't just make it up.
It helps your audience know how to retrace your steps or recreate your work.
And it demonstrates your knowledge of your topic.
There are guides available to explain how to cite your sources in your bibliography. These guides are called STYLE MANUALS or STYLE GUIDES. Use the style manual recommended by your professor. You can also visit the Online Writing Lab published by Purdue University.
