Finding Information in Library Databases
Using sources in an academic paper is an important part of strengthening your argument. It also documents your research process and demonstrates what you have learned in the course of your research.
We all learn from the experts who have learned before us, and it's important to acknowledge those experts' ideas. Although your paper should be driven by your own ideas, sources should support your ideas.
