WRI 112/113: The Craft of Authenticity: Bibliographies Made Simple!

Guide for using the library for research successfully in Julianna Visco's writing seminar.

Zotero, Endnote, Refworks, etc

Bibliographic management tools  enable you to store library sources in your own personal database and then incorporate the citations seamlessly into your research paper in whatever format your writing seminar requires. Within these tools you can take also notes on the books and articles you find and search those notes by keyword. (Google Docs also now has a citation feature under the Tools menu).
Go to the bibliographic management page to find out more: see "register for a workshop" tab.
General information about citing sources can be found here. NOTE; a new online MLA Handbook is now available.

Annotated Bibliographies

Oxford Bibliographies is a great source/model for annotated bibliographies (many subjects are represented).
