WAGS Monthly Meeting
1:00 pm to 2:30 pm, Saturday, November 21, 2020
Cite Your Sources:  Ways to Communicate Your Research to the World & Prove You're Trustworthy *
Presented by Mark Cross
If you don't know what a source citation is, are fearful of doing it wrong, or intimidated by what experts say it should be, this class will cover the necessities and more. A citation should not strike fear in the hearts of researchers. Instead, it should be something we all practice in our daily research. Become familiar with simple practices that we can all easily learn, and why we do it.
 
If you are not a WAGS member, you are welcome to attend.  Send an email to program@wagswhittier.org and an invitation will be sent to you.
 
*  There will be a brief business meeting prior the speaker's presentation.
