Remember to cite your sources, even Mr. Darda’s lecture notes:

How to cite Mr. Darda’s lecture notes:

  • Author, A. (Publication Year). Name or title of lecture [file format]. Retrieved from URL

  • Darda, P.  (2018). Name of lecture [google slides].  Retrieved from (copy & paste google presentation url).

Also remember for your individual written bibliography you will need to cite and annotate each source for its values and limitations for you as the researcher.  Values and limitations always relate to the origin (year, author, type of source), purpose (why source was written or spoken or created & for whom?), or content (what the source describes about the topic).

Example:  The Civil Rights lecture by Mr. Darda was a valuable source to my research because of its origin.  Darda is a teacher with a degree in history.  Most of his lectures most likely came from history texts which are constantly edited for recent scholarship.  Additionally Darda is subject to school board and state curriculum standards which have determined what information is important for students to know.  The limitation of the  lecture relates to the content.  Although the lecture helped me understand the major civil rights events of my decade it was limiting to the music history which is my primary role in the presentation.  Outside research on music was necessary.
