Looking Ahead to Week Three


As you go forward, be sure to use the SUO library to further explore each to make a final decision about which you would like to pursue.


In Week 3, you will be creating your annotated bibliography, so your library work will go directly toward that assignment. Therefore, be sure to copy and paste the web links to each article that you might use into a file so that you don’t lose them. You will need them to make sure you are able to create perfect in-text citations and references as you compose your annotated bibliography in Week 3 and your rough and final drafts in Week 4 and 5, respectively.


Below are some resources to help you with formatting your essay overall and your in-text citations and references within your annotated bibliography and the rough and final drafts of your essay.
