Note Cards

Senior Research Essay


What are note cards

What are Note Cards?

Note cards are used to record all source related

information for your research paper.

Once completed, they provide an easy way for students to

organize all of their source material in one place.

They also allow students to focus on the writing of the

actual paper without having to worry about where sources

came from or finding and searching through multiple books.


Tips to remember

Tips to Remember

  • There must be both a label and source on each card.

  • Less is more – Just write down the important stuff.

  • When it comes to page numbers, dashes mean “to”, and commas mean “and” (51-58 or 34,46,52)

  • Any direct quote must be within quotation marks.

  • Do not continue information from one card to another.

  • Do not write on the back of cards.

  • Do not number cards

Direct quotations

Direct Quotations

Direct quotations can sometimes be useful in research

papers. It is important to use direct quotations sparingly

and properly cite them when doing so.

  • Quotations marks are required for direct quotes

  • They should only be used when they support your idea better than a paraphrase would.

  • Use ellipses (…) when you pick and choose selections of a quote.

  • Do not use direct quotations that are long.
