Source cards

Once you determine that a source is relevant to your research, create a source card right away to keep your information organized (and to document the source properly!) A source card should contain . . .

  • All documentation information in MLA format
  • A summary of relevant information from the source
  • A relevant direct quote from the source

Be sure to number your source cards as well.  Here is an example of a source card.
