Note Taking at Ed-Co

Easy Steps to Research Success

When you're paraphrasing:

  • use your own words - Sure you understand a lot of words, but do you use them? Write notes in words you use, and they'll make sense later and help you avoid plagiarism.
  • avoid sentences - It's quicker and it'll help you avoid plagiarizing.

Citing your sources:

Every note should cite the source the information came from. When you decide that a source will help you, create a citation in EasyBib. As you take notes from the source, use the source bar in EasyBib to identify which source those notes came from.

Organizing your notes

Follow this process, and your researching work will go smoothly!
