The front of each board must be labeled with the name of the student(s) and with the year and semester completed

Provides quick guidance on preparing sketches, renderings, plans, models, presentation boards, materials boards, and slideshows for design presentations
When your instructor doesn’t care how you cite as long as you do cite, make sure to include the information someone would need to find your source on their own. A citation for a case study might look like this:
“The Edith Green-Wendell Wyatt Federal Building” case study. AIA Top Ten. http://www.aiatopten.org/node/494.
Cite It Where You Use It
Every time you use a quotation, a piece of information, or an image from another source, cite the source right where you use it, whether it’s on your project board or in your paper, job book or presentation.
Include enough information to allow your audience to figure out which source (from your complete list at the end) you’re citing. For example, if you use the case study in the example above, the citation on your board or presentation slide might be “Edith Green”.
Check out this tutorial on Citing Sources Informally for more guidelines and examples to informally cite every source you use - whether it’s a book, magazine, website, blog or video - and avoid plagiarism.
