Don’t use bold print on your paper. You must type your paper using Microsoft Word. Use 12 point Times New Roman font and double space.

Preparation of preliminary bibliography: 1. 1. Contains at least 5 cited sources which may include sources found on the AVL. Use the link below to find online sources as well as contact the NACC library for assistance. One of your sources can be your novel; just be sure to cite the novel within your text. Please be very careful and selective when choosing sources from the internet. Many internet sites are not published by reputable sources. Wikipedia, for example, is NOT a scholarly source because anyone can submit to it. I will count off on your research paper if you use non-scholarly sources. If it has a name like anti-study or mega essays, common sense should tell you it is NOT a scholarly site. The Alabama Virtual Library is a great place to find scholarly source material. Also, you are not allowed to use Shmoop, Blogs, Spark Notes, Cliff Notes, Lit Charts, ENotes, or anything like these sources. If you have questions regarding the reliability of any source early in the semester, you will be required to turn in a preliminary Works Cited page. The purpose of this is to let me check your sources before you get too far along with the paper. REMEMBER DO NOT USE WIKIPEDIA. ALSO ALL YOUR SOURCES MUST HAVE NAMED AUTHORS. NO SPARKNOTES OR CLIFF NOTES SOURCES CAN BE USED. THIS ALSO INCLUDES LIT CHARTS, SHMOOP, BLOGS, AND ENOTES. 2. Each source cited should be entered on the Works Cited page. 3.
