Conducting a literature review is often a part of preparing your paper. Library resources will be helpful with this aspect of your project.

CITATION MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE
If you will be using a lot of literature, formatting the citations for your References (sometime called Bibliography) by hand can be tedious. There are freely available software tools that can automate the process - with the advantage of offering you a large number of citation formats. The two I'd recommend the most would be Mendeley and Zotero. I am available to help you with either of these (I can also help with some of the other citation management systems, if you don't care for these two - just ask). There are also a lot of online tutorials on how to use Mendeley and Zotero.
