All students at Union County College are expected to become "information literate" before they graduate and all college-credit courses are expected to have an information literacy component.
"Information literacy" requires that you can do research on any topic assigned using the library and the internet. It requires that you can distinguish facts from opinions, reputable sources from propaganda, primary sources and secondary sources, and much more. It also requires that you can do a bibliography. The end product of research is usually a term paper or article.
Freshman level (100-level) courses at Union County College have not traditionally required a term paper and none will be required in this course. But in order to comply with the renewed emphasis on information literacy, you will be required to submit an annotated bibliography on any subject covered in this course. No two students will be permitted to research the same subject. Read the detailed instructions on my Information Literacy pages. This project involves three stages:
Stage 1. By Tuesday, September 18. Selection of topic for annotated bibliography.
Pick any person, event or idea listed in the index of the Hunt or Kehoe texts, which interests you and happened before 1648 in Europe. Clear the topic with me and start doing the annotated bibliography.
Stage 2. Due Tuesday, October 16. Submit an annotated bibliography of five items grouped into the following three categories:
a. one encyclopedia (not online)
The Encyclopedia and the two books must be in the Union County College MacKay Library. Preferably the two articles are also available in a magazine or journal in our library. But if you can not find an appropriate source in our library, then utilize one of our online Data Bases. Do not use Web based articles as your sources.
The annotated bibliography MUST use the Turabian format, which is the same as the Chicago Style Manual.
Stage 3. Due Tuesday, November 20. Submit an annotated bibliography of ten items, using the corrected material from the first submission plus five new items grouped into the following categories:
a. one encyclopedia
The annotated bibliography must use the Turabian Citation Style
Annotation. Annotating a bibliographic entry means to write a brief paragraph explaining the book or article. Briefly describe the content of the book or article. Who wrote the article? What are his or her credentials? Include the library where you did the research and the library call numbers of the resource in your annotation. (Not in the bibliographic entry). Evaluate the magazine where the article appeared. Is it well known, specialized, scholarly? If you used the internet, then state whose WEB site you are using. Evaluate the usefulness, to you, of the article, book, or WEB site.
Check out my Information Literacy Pages for more information.
