Know how to use your source materials and cite them

See the section Citing sources on the Links page (p. 52). There's also a nice section on using sources in the middle of another article entitled "Writing a General Research Paper"

(http://www2.rscc.cc.tn.us/~jordan_jj/OWL/Research.html) from the Roane State Community College OWL (Henley, 1996). The section, "What Happens When the Sources Seem to be Writing My Paper For Me?" describes how to break up long quotations and how to cite an author multiple times without letting the author take over your paper, and it links to both the MLA and the APA style requirements for partial quotations, full quotations, indented quotations, in-text quotations, and paraphrasing.
