WHEN TO CITE
To avoid the potential for plagiarism, a good rule of thumb is to provide a citation for any idea that is not
your own. This includes:
> Direct quotation
> Paraphrasing of a quotation, passage, or idea
> Summary of another's idea or research
> Specific reference to an obscure fact, figure, or phrase
You do not need to cite widely-accepted common knowledge (e.g. "George Washington was the first President of the
United States."), proverbs, or common phrases unless you are using a direct quotation.
When in doubt, avoid the possibility of plagiarism and cite your source.

Constructed in 1982, the Atlanta University Center (AUC) Robert W. Woodruff Library is named in honor of the late Robert Winship Woodruff, philanthropist and former CEO of The Coca-Cola Company. The library supports the teaching, learning and research missions of four institutions of higher education that comprise the world’s largest consortium of HBCUs: Clark Atlanta University, the Interdenominational Theological Center, Morehouse College and Spelman College. As the “center of the Center,” the AUC Woodruff Library is the intellectual and information hub of the Atlanta University Center.
The AUC Woodruff Library is also home to the Archives Research Center, which is noted for its extensive and unique holdings of materials on the African American experience, including the John Henrik Clarke Africana and African American Collection and the Henry P. Slaughter and Countee Cullen Memorial Collection. In addition, at the request of Morehouse College, the library serves as custodian of the Morehouse College Martin Luther King Jr. Collection.
