Carleton’s Academic Integrity policy means that the Library cannot check or verify if your citations are correct. Librarians and Subject Specialists can answer general questions about citation practices. In all cases students should consult the specific edition of the citation guide assigned for your class.

Disclaimer: Citing geospatial data can be complex and may not easily or neatly conform to standard citation structure. Examples below are based on citing data files in APA, Chicago, and MLA formats but may include other information such as retrieval URLs. It is good practice to confirm citation format and structure with course professor, instructor, TA, advisor, or publisher when possible.
