How many sources are you required to use for this paper? Some instructors will require you to use a particular number of sources.  The length of the assignment can also help you determine how many sources you will need. The longer your paper is, the more numerous the sources you will need to write it.  Itís always a good idea to find more good sources than you need.  You can always choose not to include some sources later based on their relevance to your topic.  

Tip

Always read your assignment carefully so youíll understand what youíre being asked to do.
