Library Research Report Assignment Due: Sunday night at end of Week 2 Submit : your work through the "Submit your Library Research Report” link. Format : Annotated Bibliography containing 4 citations / annotations. (1 annotation & citation per source, for 4 sources total). Please double-space all work in this class. Use Font size 12, Times New Roman, one inch margins all around. For how to double-space work correctly, view this link : Double-spacing in Word. Length : 400-600 words total. Minimum of 100-150 words per annotation. At least 100 words per source should be original wording by the student. (Do not include journal or article titles within the annotation /descriptive portion of the assignment - these are already included in the citation, so are redundant.) Tip: Do NOT give lengthy quotations instead of your own wording -- this assignment is not about finding and giving long quotes, but instead, providing summary and analysis of relevant part(s) of the work , in your own words, answering the key questions: WHO?, WHAT?, HOW?, and SO WHAT? about the source in relation to your research question. Any quotes of over 40 words, and you are headed into troubled waters. (i.e. - Such assignments generally miss the point of the LRR and do poorly, grade-wise). File Type : Please submit work as a .doc, or .docx file. Do NOT write the assignment in as text as all formatting will be lost. Source Types: At least 2 of the 4 of the annotations must be from scholarly, peer-reviewed journal articles. More than 2 scholarly, peer-reviewed sources is absolutely encouraged and recommended. ALL sources should be published within the last 10 years. (The more recent, the better!) ALL SOURCES MUST HAVE NAMED AUTHORS ATTRIBUTED TO THE SOURCE TO ENSURE ACCOUNTABILITY REGARDING THE INFORMATION. WITHOUT A NAMED AUTHOR, THE SOURCE HAS ZERO CREDIBILTY FOR ACADEMIC RESEARCH PURPOSES AND WILL NOT COUNT TOWARDS THE LRR REQUIREMENTS. !!! Scholarly sources must be verified through Ulrich's Serial Directory : Please note the library search engines OFTEN erroneously denote articles as being from peer-reviewed/scholarly sources when they are NOT! (e.g. - categorizing a magazine article as a scholarly peer-reviewed article) As a result, for them to be credited, they need to be verified as scholarly peer reviewed journal articles by Ulrich's Serial Directory. Use this link to type in JOURNAL (NOT ARTICLE) titles to ensure your source is a peer-reviewed and scholarly article: See this resource on using Ulrich's to determine your source type. Make sure that Ulrich’s Directory denotes your source as both a “JOURNAL” AND has the “Refereed” Symbol indicating it is peer reviewed. b - demo/0_uf376wd t Help!
