Welcome to the library! Our seven goals for today:

  1. How to find sources of information in our databases
  2. What databases are, and how they are different from finding information using Google
  3. What keywords are
  4. How to email articles to yourself and get the MLA citation of an article
  5. The difference between magazines, newspapers, and scholarly, peer reviewed articles
  6. Feel comfortable in the library and confident using the library's resources
  7. Do one entry for your annotated bibliography

 

From the Directions

From the directions:

For this assignment, you will be completing an annotated bibliography with 5 entries, 3 of which must be from scholarly, peer reviewed sources. The other two can be from newspapers, magazines, or other reliable sources found in the library databases. Please do not use encyclopedias as a source.

  • Cuddy’s power poses or “fake it till you become it”
  • Dweck’s growth mindset
  • Duckworth’s grit
  • Ross’s unconscious bias
  • Milgram’s obedience.

You should be further narrowing your topic to research a specific area or application in depth.

            1. a citation (for a works cited page)

            2. keywords you used to find the article and keywords you can use from the article

            3. authors and who they are (why they are authorities)

            4. a summary of the article, its findings (who, what, when, where, why)

  5. thoughts on what the article means, why it’s important, how the information is useful or can be used
