More current topics tend to be more readily available online than in hardcopy. 10-15 years is the oldest your data should be unless your topic is historical or relevant to antiquated source information. Download to a flash drive, print out, or photocopy these sources to read and annotate. Be sure to get web addresses, author and copyright information and access dates for web sources. This is critical, so be sure to copy it, or set your web browser so that it will print it. Do not hand in your sources with your completed research paper. These are for your own use. Correct formatting of citation information is available using Citation Machine’s site. http://www.citationmachine.net/ This link is posted on Etudes for direct access. Sample MLA formatting and guidelines are available at http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/01/ This link is posted on Etudes for direct access. Sources will be organized alphabetically by author or title. If there is no author [considered an anonymous source], use the first major word of the title other than “a,” “an,” or “the” in place of the author to alphabetize. Be sure to use a writing handbook such as Everyday Writer or Rules for Writers or A Writer’s Reference to check the typed format of each entry. Do not number each entry, and do not organize your sources by type of source.]]>
