As a follow-up to the recent Plagiarism Seminar, Eric Wardell, the Writing Center tutor, is offering a free seminar for students on How to Write APA/MLA Citations. The seminar is scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 17, from 1–2 p.m. in the Dakota Room (1-520B). Attendance at the previous seminar is not a prerequisite, but the Citation Seminar will prove particularly relevant for students who received the heads-up on plagiarism.

Wardell will be showing students how to handle all the seemingly nit-picky and technical parts of writing a paper, focusing on the often daunting citation process. The knowledge gained at this seminar will allow students to cut way down on the time it takes to write a paper and be more accurate at the same time.

“I feel that students largely avoid and fear citation because of the number of different rules and regulations,” reports Wardell, “but in this seminar we are going to address all of those fears and show how easy, quick, and effective citation can be for making a good point and getting a good grade. We will be looking at both in-text citations and works-cited pages.”
