Welcome to the library! For your research on computer issues, you should begin with the Canadian Student Research Centre. If you are using Google, make sure to evaluate the websites you use with CARS (Credibility, Accuracy, Reasonableness, Support)
Learn about MLA style in-text citations from this video. Then play a game to see what you’ve learned. Talk to your librarian about what you might need to work on (refer to the handout “How to Cite Your Sources in a Presentation”)
As a class, we will go over the concepts of plagiarism, academic honesty, and citations, as well as reliable sources. We will use this handout on Citation for Beginners to guide our discussion, and view the tutorial by Acadia University called “You Quote It, You Note It”.
On your computer, you will review reliable sources by doing this activity:
Online Scavenger Hunt for BTT
Then you will practice your citation skills by doing this activity:
Computer Citation Practice for BTT
Your name is collected along with your responses for both activities; you will be assessed!
To review what you have learned, check out Research Tutorial’s video on In-text Citations.
