Giving Credit to Others
When you use someone else's words, work, thoughts, and/or ideas, you need to give the person credit. It doesn't matter whether you quote the person word-for-word or put it in your own words (paraphrase), you need to acknowledge where the words, work, thought, or idea originated. Otherwise, you are passing it off as your own.
Prepare Bibliography/Works Cited
Use the bibliographic information collected to create a bibliography or a works cited.
Use NoodleTools to generate a works cited OR create your own with the guidance of Purdue's OWL (online writing lab).
Don't forget to record the following for each source you use:
- Title of article, chapter, film, webpage
- Page number
- Name of magazine, newspaper, journal, book, website
- Publication date
- Name of subscription database (if used)
- Format (web, print)
- Date of access (if found online)
