ProQuest Research Companion includes a section that explains plagiarism and what to do to keep from having problems with it. It also includes a "Citation Builder" tool that will help you create proper citations for your sources.
Most databases that require you to login do provide citations for you. You might have to look around to find them, but they are there. In most EBSCO databases the citations are on the right side of the screen. You will need to click on the "Cite" button for the citation to appear. In NBC Learn, the citation button is under the video. Once you select the "Citation" button, the citation is created. Then you can copy and paste it into your citation page.
HOWEVER, we recommend that you check the citation against one of the citation guides provided on the website.
Some classes offer this online tutoring option in CANVAS.
Here is how to access it. First, you have to login to your canvas account and select a class. Next, look at the left side of the page and Net tutor should be one of the options in the class.
NetTutor offers tutoring services in a variety of subjects.
NOT ALL CLASSES INCLUDE THIS LINK IN CANVAS. Before panicking, please check if any of your other classes offer it. You should be able to access all information and tutor help from any class that offers it.
