A citation, sometimes called a reference, is a description of a book, journal article or other resource. It needs to provide enough information so that readers can identify and find the resource.
Any statement that uses a fact or an idea from your source - even if you paraphrase and put the idea in your own words - must be referenced.
There are many different methods of citation. APA 7 and Chicago Style are two that you can use in CCI101. Make sure to choose one and use it consistently within your assessment.
In addition to providing references for all the scholarly material you use in your assessment, in CCI101 you must provide copies of all the images you discuss in your essay.
These images should be provided in an appendix after your bibliography. Images should provide evidence for your argument, they are not decoration. They should not appear within the text of your essay, as this often causes formatting problems.
Make sure all images are large enough for detail to be visible. Make sure you include any image that informs your writing - artworks, photographs, stills from a film or animation, stage designs, objects, or charts and diagrams.
For example, in your text you could use:
When we consider Delacroix's The Death of Sardanapalus (Figure 1), it is evident that...
You would then include the following information in the caption under each image in your appendix:
Figure number: Artist. (Year artwork was made). Title of Artwork [Description]. Place the artwork is held (art gallery, museum, etc.), location if known. Database or website where you retrieved the image.
e.g. Figure 1: Eugene Delacroix. (1827). Death of Sardanapalus [Oil on canvas]. Musee du Louvre, Paris. Retrieved from www.louvre.fr
You can directly quote from a source as long as you make it very clear what is the quote and what is your own words. Format it clearly and make sure to cite correctly.
