Quoting, Paraphrasing and Summarizing

Sometimes students don't realize that all sources, not only those that contain a direct quote, need to be cited properly.  This website from the OWL at Purdue (Online Writing Lab) can help you distinguish between a paraphrase, a summary and a direct quote.

Interlibrary Loan

EFFICIENCY TIP -- Make an Interlibrary Loan  request when the journal article you are seeking is not available in free-to-you fulltext.  Always consult an Ask Us librarian before making a request, since we may be able to locate the fulltext for you.   

Because the ILL process may take a couple of weeks, do plan ahead.  Request only articles that promise to deliver quality information. 

See the librarians, Elizabeth, Lee, or Michael, for further information.
