Quotations and Paraphrasing

You need to make clear the distinction between direct quotation and paraphrasing

Direct quotation needs a citation, or a source where the passage originates. You need to record full citations for each book, article, archival material, etc. used in your writing. The RefWorks is a good place to keep the citations in an organized manner. 

Tips to Search the Catalog and Databases
