Question:

I know I have to attribute a quote to the original source but do I have to do that if I paraphrase the information? What is the difference between a quotation and paraphrasing?

Inactive
Lynea A.
Answer:

A quote includes the exact wording of the original source, usually within quotation marks, and is a small portion of the source. Your document must also include proper attribution or credit to the original author.. When you paraphrase a passage from another source you restate the passage in your own words, usually in a shorter or more condensed form. You must also provide proper attribution or credit to the original author when you paraphrase their work.

Lynea A.
Answer:

Your local library has databases of authoritative resources (such as AcademicOneFile and Ebsco) available for you to use in performing your research. These databases have been vetted by the librarians and the contents of the databases have been vetted by experts at the publishers. The databases also provide assistance in creating accurate citations for the resources that you use. You will also be able to read descriptions of the databases to assist you in selecting the correct ones to use for your research.

Answer:

The last comma in a series that comes before "and" or "or" is known as the Oxford comma. Using it helps to eliminate some confusion about the items being set off by the commas.
