Notetaking tips

You do not have to have a full bibliographic entry included at the top of the page of notes

You should indicate at the top where you got the information, e.g. ‘BBC website’ or ‘Book: The History of Factories’

But including necessary information can help you make your bibliography later

Point form fine

Remember your paragraphs will have to be in your own words, even in your notes are not

Should be handwritten but typed OK too.

BE SELECTIVE WITH YOUR SOURCES: If you only have a few lines of notes, that source probably doesn’t have enough information to help. You should have several lines worth of information from each source.

Absolutely no Wikipedia, or similar, search engines, blogs, prezis, wikis, etc. You should be consulting reliable academic sources.
