Last Minute Research: Step 4

Now do this

Do your bibliography.  Do it.  Do it now.  Seriously.

"But I haven't even written the paper yet", you protest in an aggrieved tone.

I know, I know, but just trust me.  Do the bibliography now.  Use the links in the Help with Citations box to the right to create your Works Cited or Reference List. 

Doing the "bib" first is one of the best secret librarian tips that I can offer you.  Once it's done, you'll have all the information you need to create your in-text citations, as you write the paper.  This will be a huge time-saver for you and I think we both know that time is of the essence here.

Oh, and P.S.: don't forget if you get stuck or have questions, Ask the Librarian.  We actually like this stuff and are happy to help.
