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.
Type-in keywords and use the filters on the left side to sort books from articles, videos, etc.
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!
