Four Videos

The first video that I watched for class talks about summaries. A summary is a shortend version of the topic in your own words. Paraphrasing is using your own words but not making it shorter. Also restating something is just using your own words.

The second video talks about using keywords. Using keywords in a search engine such as google search is way different from using keywords in a library search engine. In a library search engine when you type keywords in the keywords are words that will be found within the article. So when typing keywords imagine words that will be in the article.

The third video talks about the difference between popular sources and scholarly sources. Scholar sorces have more depth to them, usually in black and white, have lots of refrences, and contain complex vocabulary. Popular sources attract your attention, have lots of decoration, and not much information

The last video talks about how citation. No matter how bright your ideas are in the paper or what you say if you dont give the credit deserved to the right source the right way this could result into getting in trouble.
