looking for sources

Once you have chosen your topic, it is time for you to start hunting for sources.  The more sources, the better.  Avoid limiting yourself to one, two , or three sources because this will most likely lead you to plagiarism.   Have at least 10 sources.  List them all down, the author's name, title of the book, place of publication, date of publication, and publishing company.If you find more than 10 sources, you will need to skim and scan each book or source and see which ones you will really need.  After you have chosen your sources, you can now start notetaking.  This aspect of term paper writing requires more time since notetaking involves reading.  

Next topic is Notetaking.
