Timely Tips from Mrs. O

✔Before you begin your research, go to the Gale Literary Index and enter your author's name. Check both the amount of bibliographical information and the number of critical sources on your short story; even though these sources are from only one publisher (Gale) they are an indication of the amount of research that is available on the stories that you have chosen. If the sources are may want to select another work.

 ✔Use EasyBib to generate your MLA citations. Find the program under More in your NSA email.

✔Using the free app EasyBib on your iPhone or Android phone, you can create the citations for books by either scanning the bar code or by typing in the title of the book. Citations can be emailed.

✔Note about downloading documents:

Be careful when you are downloading and/or printing from the Internet; note whether the prinout is a .doc or pdf file. The downloaded documents generally do not contain the information you need to fully cite the original source. Check to see if the document gives the web site, web address, date of printing, etc. If not, you will need to add these to your printout before you exit the web site. It is often difficult to link back to the original work.
