Annotated Bibliography

 
For this assignment only, there is no draft option. You should simply submit your required final copy whenever you are ready.  This assignment is designed to inform your larger research project. 
Topic and Structure:
Annotated Bibliography – Review four potential sources for your research paper project (you should already have your research essay topic chosen), and select two to explore further, with at least one qualifying as a periodical.
Here are some possible places to search for credible sources:

 Truman State University’s Pickler Memorial Library (this source lists periodical databases only, so you may choose your periodical here): http://library.truman.edu/Free/free.asp
Google Scholar: http://scholar.google.com/ (note that this is different from regular Google)
Microsoft Academic Search: http://academic.research.microsoft.com/
Cornell University’s arXiv (open access sources in math, biology, physics, and other fields): http://arxiv.org/

This assignment does not follow the standard introduction, body paragraph, and conclusion format; instead, you will simply create three well-developed paragraphs per source, each with a specific objective, for six paragraphs total. For each of your two chosen resources, you will summarize the material, assess the source’s content, and reflect on its value for your research paper project. Some sources are long and contain main ideas and subtopics, so be sure to focus your assignment on ideas that are relevant to your research paper topic. Learn more about summarizing, assessing, and reflecting here.
This essay also requires a particular format in which you will summarize, assess, and reflect on one source in full before you move to the next one. See the sample hereunder “Sample MLA Annotation” for format details.
