One important way to cite sources is to use in-text or parenthetical citations.
Both APA and MLA citation styles use in-text citations to show a paper's reader which source the information came from. The short in-text citation is a way of giving credit and also connecting the information to the full source citation on the References or Works Cited page at the end of the paper.
Here are a couple of examples for the full citation and an in-text citation that would appear in the paper.
MLA Citation on an MLA Works Cited Page:
English, Darby. How to See a Work of Art in Total Darkness. MIT Press, 2010.
In-text citation: (English)
APA Citation on APA References Page:
English, D. (2010). How to see a work of art in total darkness. MIT Press.
In-text citation: (English, 2010)
