* What to do when:
The source comes from another source; use “qtd in.” to show that the source came from another source. The author’s name is not given; use a reduced title of the work. Put the title in quotation marks if it's a short work, or italicize if it's a longer work and show the page number. Two authors share the same last name; provide the authors’ first initials. If the authors’ contain the same initials, then write their full name. If a long quote is needed; put quotations in a free-standing block of text and omit quotation marks. Start the quotation on a new line and indent the whole thing one inch from the left margin. If explanatory or content notes are necessary; indicate in-text by superscript Arabic numbers after the punctuation or clause which the note refers to. They are used to refer to brief additional information. If source material -- from the same source—is used later in the paper; write a paragraph that uses multiple quotes from the same source. You are to cite that source only once at the last quotation only if no other source is quoted. *
