Searching the Internet
When using the open Internet for research you must consider: Who sponsors the site? Are they an authority on the subject? Does the site present a point of view, opinion, or support a cause? How current is the information? When was the site last updated? No open Internet pages can be used as sources for your paper unless approved by a teacher.
Creating a Bibliography
You will need a bibliography or works cited page. Remember to gather the necessary information for this as you find your resources, including the title of the work, author, the type of source, the page number (if applicable), publisher, and date published. Most databases will create citations for you. For additional information and instruction, check out Noodle Tools or other citation generators, or ask the librarians.
