  • Bibliography or Works Cited
  • You may use "Noodle Bib" for this page
  • Any image used in the pamphlet should have a URL under the picture to indicate the source from which the visual was taken. An alternative to the URL under the image would be to include the same source from which the visual was taken in your bibliography.
  • You may compile your booklet/pamphlet in any appropriate style. The goal is to be sure that your booklet is organized in an orderly fashion that is easy to read and is informative.

NOTE: If you are doing a brochure, you may combine pages 6 and 7.

Consult the Simsbury High School's databases (to which you were introduced in the freshmen orientation in the fall) for your research. You may consult these databases from home. Additionally, Ms. Snyder will introduce Internet sources not in the databases during the first day in the library. Wikipedia is NOT allowed. You may also consult any books that you may find useful (library books, magazines, encyclopedias, textbook, etc.)  These sources should also be included in your bibliography.

Remember, you scan a photograph or image from a book and electronically insert it into your booklet. Mr. B can show you how to do this.
