    Collecting the material for your essay

    Sources can be found in two forms, books and articles. You should be familiar with the library’s
    electronic catalogue and the ways of searching it, in order to find books: it's not difficult, and if
    you don't know how to do it by now go immediately and find out. If you have a problem, simply
    ask a librarian, they will be happy to help you. Just spend half an hour getting familiar with the
    library computer, finding out what it can do and how the system can help you. In many cases
    books are not the primary source of information. They are often out-of-date, as you have surely
    discovered by now. Besides, in order to get the complete idea of the book, you’ll have to read
    the entire book, then work with it to filter out the main ideas. The reality is that you gain no
    special merit points for having read them, because so has everyone else
    Articles are a different matter. Articles in academic journals are normally on the shelves. They
    are more work to track down, but success will be rewarded by the admiration of your examiner.

    around the world and can be a good resource for content. Anybody can edit and add
    an article or information to Wikipedia. It offers quick understanding on many controversial
    issues. The Web has now become a fantastic resource that offers: easily available information,
    full of material, and with an answer to every question. However, there are problems, and you
    should use the Web carefully. You can not just copy and paste the content from an online article
    – it will be plagiarism and that is a crime. Many universities now have special anti-plagiarism
    software, which is used to find stolen content in the written papers students turn in as projects
    and assignments. Countless careless students have been expelled from colleges because of
    plagiarizing content from the Web. That is why you can use only ideas from internet with exact
    references to the sources, but not copying the conten
