Cite your sources!

As you work to build convincing, evidence-based arguments in your work, you will find that you want to provide evidence based on the work of others. You need to cite that work, so that others know that a) you’re not just making stuff up (not very convincing) and b) that you have done your legwork and are therefore trustworthy and c) that you are giving proper credit to others for the work that they have done.

How and when to cite the work of others in your own work is a major topic in the St. Mark’s Writing Manual.
