Making note of where you found information that you use in a report is an important part of doing research, and required for many homework assignments. It is important to give credit to the authors and creators of information and images that you use in a report. This is called citing your source. It also is important to list materials you read or viewed that gave you ideas for your report. This is called creating a bibliography.
