Library Poster Printing

Print posters at the Main Library! You will need to bring your Buzzcard to the Multimedia Studio on the ground floor of the Library. Cost for printing posters ranges from $2.50-$3 per linear foot, payable by Buzzcard. See the Multimedia Studio Technical Support Assistant for more information on how to send your job to the poster printer.

Printing Posters at the Paper & Clay (Student Center)

Paper & Clay is located in the Student Center.  They provide a poster printing service for a fee, with details available on the website. Plan ahead to allow time for printing.

Creating Citations

The Georgia Tech Comm Lab is a terrific resource for all your citing, writing, revising, editing and presenting needs.

Visit our library guide on Research/Writing/Citing Sources for information on creating proper citations following different styles.  Look for under the Citation Styles tab for a list of options. 

I also recommend the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) for proper citation format questions for MLA, APA, or Chicago style. 

Notes & Resources on Intellectual Property

Attribution

As you prepare class projects, you may want to include various forms of media (text, images, video clips, etc.). Anything that you borrow - whether a direct quotation from a source, a paraphrase of another's argument, an image, or a movie clip or movie still - needs to have citation information attributing that work/information to its creator. Outside sources should be cited regardless of whether the work is protected by copyright.
