Tips for Success

  • When you find a good source (book, article, web page), record the title, author, and other bibliographic info (journal title, web address, etc.).

  • Take notes from your sources.
  • As you read, mark the parts you might like to quote in your paper.
  • Keep organized. Keep a binder with copies of articles, your notes, and drafts of your outline.
