    A resource is something you consult whenever you need- a dictionary is a resource.

    A source is where you got a specific piece of information from, so a book you use for an essay is a source.

    So there is no need to cite the resourse, however there is a need to cite the sourse if we are writing a research.

    If you use a resource in a piece of writing, it becomes a source for that piece and should be cited, so an encyclopedia, say, would be included in the bibliography if used.
