Primary sources are preferred in most academic work, but if the primary source is unable to be located or otherwise unavailable, follow the steps below.

"Follow these directions when citing a secondary source:

  • In the reference list, provide an entry for the secondary source that you used.
  • In the text, identify the primary source and write “as cited in” the secondary source that you used."
