Avoiding Plagiarism and Citing Sources


About this Guide

•  What is the population of your hometown?

•  How long did World War II last?

Use the blue tabs above to find sources providing factual answers to these types of questions. 

You will find a variety of online items such as books about world religions, or a 5-part encyclopedia about the Vietnam War that includes primary source documents.

Gale Virtual Reference Library is a starting place if you are not sure which tab to use.

Contact a librarian as directed in the Get Help box if you don't find what you are looking for.
