A summary is a brief restatement of a sources main idea. Summaries are descriptions not evaluations so using my own words is important but not my own opinions. A summary is something that is summarized so it is shorter than the source it is coming from. Sources are extremely important to cite. When citing all of the sources used in the correct format it makes one appear more credible and it is respectful. Finding these resources is easy using the Kimbel Library Database it is not like the Google search engine but it is similar. The differences between the two are the keywords. When using this database it is important to search words pertaining to the words you may find in an article you would use. Unlike typical search engines questions and useless words are not used and only 2-4 words are needed.
