NEW!!  Credo Reference Resource

credoThis is an amazing resource of reference materials.  You have access to over 400 reference titles and thousands of images and videos.



Don’t forget about our TVHS Library Catalog!

**And once you have done your research, you need to cite your sources!

Whenever you borrow an idea, thought, image, word, song, or anything else not yours from a source you are using for research, you must give credit to the source from which you borrowed the information.

You can use the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) to learn more about citing sources.

You can use knightcite to create your citations.  Don’t worry – it will lead you through exactly what you need for the citation!  You can also use easybib, if you prefer.  Or bibme.

Did you borrow an image?  Check out this resource for citing your images: Image Citations for Class Projects

And here is some additional information and an example for your Bibliography, AKA, Works Cited Page.
