Research - Step by Step: Turabian Style

How to find scholarly resources in the Steelman Library

What is it and why do I have to do it?

Citation tells your reader that you got an idea from someone else.  It consists of a little note in the text of your paper that lets your reader know, and then a much longer note at the end of your paper that tells your reader where to find the original idea. 

Citation is tedious, boring and sometimes difficult.  You still have to do it.  Start collecting the information for your citations as soon as you start reading.  Don't leave it to the end.
