I am Alicia, your ENC1101 librarian. If you have questions, send me an email, or ask for me at the
Bradenton Library & Learning Center, Bldg. 3
Follow the steps below to find resources for the Research Paper and Annotated Bibliography.
Databases recommended for ENC1101 are listed in the box below.
This "all-in-one search" includes books, ebooks, videos, articles & more:
Gather all your sources (articles, books, websites, etc.) and create their citations in MLA.
You can use the citation tools from the databases, but remember to COPY/PASTE & CORRECT, or check with a librarian.
List the citations in alphabetical order, in a page titled "Annotated Bibliography".
The citations should be indented with a "hanging indentation" and double spaced, with no extra spaces between lines.
Under each citation, write a paragraph that summarizes what's about, explains how it's useful for your topic, what part of the article you are going to use, etc.
Important: Your professor usually gives you directions on what they want you to write in the notes/annotations. Check their instructions!
