Citing your sources (telling the reader where you got your information) answers these questions:
Where did you find you information?
Are your sources reliable?
Where can I go to learn more about your topic?
Research Project Tip #1: Gather and keep information about your resources as you go. Don’t wait until the end and have to go looking for them!
Research Project Tip #2: Many online sources, including the databases on our database page, will create the citation for you—just copy and paste it to your “Works Cited” or “Bibliography” page or slide.
