When you quote or paraphrase a source in your paper or essay you will need to provide a reference in the text of your paper as well as a complete citation for your source at the end of your paper.

If you are using MLA style this type of citation is called an in-text citation. More information can be found here.

If you are using APA style this type of citation is called a parenthetical reference. More information can be found here.

More examples for in-text references for other citation styles can be found here.
