Should I make those links no follow or do follow?

For that occasion, the answer is to use the follow / don't do nothing.

If the content you're creating is a decent piece of legit, original content, you should insert your sources or link to relevant pieces using a normal link and not even thinking about it.

I normally only use nofollow in situations like:

  1. Paid Links;
  2. Comments;
  3. Something not generated by you (imagine your users can create posts).

Other than this, you shouldn't worry that much with the type of link.

There are some situations that might require special attention, like Links in Widgets, take a look at what Matt Cuts says about the subject.

And the official Google position:

How does Google handle nofollowed links?

In general, we don't follow them. This means that Google does not transfer PageRank or anchor text across these links. Essentially, using nofollow causes us to drop the target links from our overall graph of the web. However, the target pages may still appear in our index if other sites link to them without using nofollow, or if the URLs are submitted to Google in a Sitemap. Also, it's important to note that other search engines may handle nofollow in slightly different ways.

Here's some good reads about this:
