Today’s podcast episode is about source citations. We’ll discuss when you need to make citations, how to do it, and the questions to ask that will guide you as you create them: who, what, when, where within, and where in the world. If you feel overwhelmed by the thought of making source citations you’re not alone. Nicole tells about her experience really learning how to do it. Diana will tell us about layered source citations, and we’ll also talk about the difference between reference notes and source list entries.

I have been dragging my feet when it comes to the source citations! After watching the webinar and podcast I do not feel as intimidated about diving into my citations and I can see more clearly the value of a source citation.
Great news! I love to hear this and I think you’ll feel so empowered when you’ve finally tackled a source citation and come up on the other side.
