It is plagiarism if you don't cite the source. If you cut and paste, what you use must be inside quotation marks.

  1. You'll need an in-text citation after the quote.
  2. If your quote is longer than 39 words, it becomes a block quote which is formatted differently. Look for more information on block quotes on the library's APA Citation Guide.
  3. At the end of your post, you'll need a reference section. Format this as you would the reference section in a paper, except not as a separate page.

Use the APA Guide for citation examples and more information on quotes. Please contact your campus librarian with any further questions.
