Middle School Library: The WHAT, WHY, WHERE & HOW of Citation & Creative Commons
A great way to quickly create your Works Consulted (a.k.a. bibliography)
Do I Have to Cite EVERYTHING?!
You have to cite everything:
you use for research
you use in your paper
"I just know this!" If you asked five people on the street about this fact, would they know it? A good example is "Who was the first President of the United States?" Everybody knows this is George Washington. But if you asked "When was George Washington born?" they'd need to look it up first. You have to cite wherever you looked that information up.
