Quotations
A common request received at the Reference Desk revolves around who said what or what exactly did someone say.  There are numerous print resources in the reference collection (including Bartlett's Familiar Quotations), but there are also numerous Web sites dedicated to quotations.  So if you are ever wondering who said something or are looking for a quote to use in a speech, here are a few places to start. 
Remember attribution, which means from whom and where the quote came, is an important part of any quotation.  If you are unsure of the attribution, the Wright Library reference librarians can help.
