While reading these chapters, I took extensive notes and hope they will help me follow the procedures correctly. From February 14 until February 20, I gathered information from both the Rothrock Library at Lehigh Carbon Community College and the Allentown Public Library, utilizing the libraries’ catalogs and the Proquest database.

I also composed an annotated bibliography of the journal articles I intend to use for my report, and will augment the list to include the book sources as soon as I receive them from Interlibrary Loan. You will receive my annotated bibliography no later than March 3 at 9:00 AM. I began taking notes from the journal articles I found through Proquest on February 23 and started outlining my report.

You will receive my final copy of the report by March 31 at 9:00 AM....
