Welcome to Notes, Quotes, and Citing

What to know: Reading the articles/books you find, taking notes, and citing them correctly are important steps in writing a paper or project that shows everything you’ve learned. While these aren’t really things librarians help with, we want you to succeed, so here’s some information about how to do each.

What you'll learn: One way to organize your notes.  How to summarize, paraphrase, and quote from the materials you’ve found – and to cite each.​
Why you should care: Not citing a summary, paraphrase, or quote from another person’s work is plagiarism, a kind of theft, which can result in you receiving a poor grade on your work. ​
