About Citing Secondary Sources
You may find that an author writes about research conducted by someone else.
You should try to find and read the original research yet that may be difficult.
In these instances you will have to cite the source that you have read that refers to other research.
The words “as cited in” writing in the in-text reference will indicate you have not read the original research.
Secondary Sources (p. 178)
The Online Writing Lab at Purdue University offers an online resource which can be used in some cases. However, it does not include everything required for citing sources in one place.
The APA citation style does not cover Canadian government sources, and has only a limited section on American government resources.
Please refer to the staff at the Library Reference Desk for clarification when citing Canadian government sources.
