It is not always possible to make copies of all the records that a researcher examines. After citing the source for the record the researcher may make a transcription, an extraction or an abstract of the record. These techniques may also be used when preparing the written report.

  • transcription – an exact copy of a record including punctuation and spelling
  • extraction – an exact copy of part of the record
  • abstract – an abbreviated summary of some points in the records
