Here are the sources I consulted when putting together this guide:
Hofer, Amy R., et al. Transforming Information Literacy Instruction: Threshold Concepts in Theory and Practice, ABC-CLIO, LLC, 2018. ProQuest Ebook Central, https://ebookcentral.proquest.com/lib/ualberta/detail.action?docID=5572303.
Osif, Bonnie A. Using the Engineering Literature. 2nd ed. Boca Raton, Fla.: CRC Press, 2012.
You will be required to cite your sources in your academic work as well. Most researchers use a reference manager (my preference is Zotero) to keep track of items they have read. These tools can help format your references in the required style and insert them properly into your reports. They become most useful if you need to keep track of bibliographic information for many papers, or if you need to share the information with others.
