What is Footnotes?

Footnotes are a form of in-text citation that does not disrupt the flow of the text. Basically, at the end of a quotation or piece of information, you see a little number. If you look at the bottom (foot) of the page, you will see the same number followed by information. This information could be a citation, or extraneous information that the author thought some readers might find interesting, but which did not flow with the rest of the writing.
