As a student, you may be tasked with writing essays, research reports, theses, and even journal articles. Most forms of academic writing will involve summarizing, paraphrasing or quoting sources of information that need to be cited.
Locating sources of information to cite may include searching the library discovery tool Omni, library databases or the internet in order to find books, journal articles or any other source of information that addresses your topic. If you are unsure about how to get started, contact the library for help!
