How to Search for Information<br />Do not ask the computer a question…<br />“Where do Buddhists worship and who leads this?”<br />…it will not give you an answer!<br />Instead use keywords:“Buddhism AND places of worship”<br />***using quotations will refine your search to EXACTLY what you are researching***<br />
Bibliography/Works Cited<br />A bibliography is a list of citations for books, periodical articles or other materials, such as personal/professional websites.<br />A “Works Cited” Page is just another name for a Bibliography. They mean the same thing.<br />
Why do we need to have a bibliography?<br />Bibliographies are very important when it comes to research. If information comes from somewhere other than YOUR OWN KNOWLEDGE, you must give credit to the original researcher!!! <br />Copying someone else’s work is called PLAGIARISM.<br />
Plagiarism??<br />Apiece of writing that has been copied from someone else and is presented as being your own work.<br />The act of plagiarizing; taking someone's words or ideas as if they were your own. <br />
