Annotated Bibliography Instructions The extra credit project is voluntary and is worth a maximum of 10 points. For the extra credit project you will create an annotated bibliography (or "webliography" if it includes only web sites) citing and describing five of the best Internet resources on a specified topic. You should use all of the search tools and evaluation criteria you have learned about in this course. NOTE: You do not have to write an actual research paper. The project is designed to use the research skills you have learned in this class, and will help you in future classes where you will be writing research papers. Take a look at the sample project as a general guideline for completing your project. Submit the project to your instructor as a Word document attachment. INCLUDE YOUR NAME, STUDENT ID, AND TOPIC. If you use Works, or another program other than Microsoft Word, please save the file as RTF (rich text format) before sending. If you have a Google account you can use Google Drive to create a document and download your file as .doc or .pdf. You would then attach these to the assignment submission form. Yet another option is the free OpenOffice which will allow you to make a Word compatible document. • • • • • • • Choose a topic of interest. Be careful not to choose a topic that is too broad or too narrow. (Review Lesson 2, Research Strategies, for help on narrowing or broadening a topic.) Include both the topic AND a thesis statement with your bibliography. Find five different Internet resources that you think provide the most authoritative information about your topic. Web pages are fine but you must use one article from an electronic research database (such as Academic Search Complete). See Lesson 5 for login information. Use the checklist (see attachment) to evaluate all resources retrieved. Describe each of the five resources you have chosen, making sure you address EACH issue on the checklist for each of the five resources. (Review Lesson 6, Evaluating Internet Resources, for help in evaluating your resources.) Cite each resource using the MLA citation format (See Lesson 7). Pay close attention to the proper placement of punctuation and underlining. There are helpful online resources for MLA style both in your campus libraries (citation guides and handouts) as well as online (see Subject Websites--Citation Styles). You will lose points if your material is not cited properly. Use the examples in the Sample Project (see attachment) as a general guideline for completing your project. There are examples of documents from organizations, commercial, educational, and government sites. LOOK CAREFULLY AT THE CITATION FORMAT FOR EACH. Pay attention to grammar, punctuation and spelling when writing your annotations. Points will be deducted for incorrect grammar, capitalization and punctuation.
