Copyright and Citation
Following copyright law and citing sources correctly are tricky in the world of digital publishing and academic research. See how we can help make it easier.

- Citation Information – NCSU Libraries
- Citation Management – NCSU Libraries
- K-12 Copyright and Citation Information
Self-check your work by running papers, proposals, literature reviews, etc. through the NC State Turnitin service. Follow these directions to enroll in a Moodle Project Space and then upload a paper for grammar checking and originality checking – go.ncsu.edu/CEDTurnitin
We can also present to classes and/or co-teach with you on digital citizenship, citation management and more.
