This assignment will help prepare you to write your research paper,which is due later in the course. The topic you select should be onethat is of interest to you, discussed in the course, and one that youwould like to research and write about.
For the annotatedbibliography assignment you will decide on a topic, formulate a researchquestion and select a case from the resources available in the UMUClibrary databases. Once you have selected your case, you will alsoconduct a literature review identifying 5-6 additional scholarly sourcesthat relate to your topic, one of which is the case study selected byyou.
(For example, if you have an interest in Diversity, youwould formulate a research question related to diversity, locate a casestudy in the library related to diversity,( typically a company casethat has a diversity initiative, problem, etc.) and then search forscholarly articles related to your topic and research question). TheUMUC librarians can also assist you with this assignment.
Onceyou have identified your topic, case study, scholarly sources andformatted your question, you will write your annotations. You must haveat least 5-6 annotations (4-5 articles and 1 case study).
Each annotation includes four parts:
1. summary of the article or summary of the case study selected from the UMUC library databases
2. the credentials of the author(s)
3. credibility of the source (peer-reviewed, non-peer-reviewed)
4. how you will use the information in your paper.
Each part must be discussed in each annotation, therefore each annotation is at least several paragraphs.
