Annotated Bibliography #2
Must have 4-6 academic sources (NO: Textbooks, Book Reviews, News Papers, Encyclopedias, .com, political.orgs, or the like). Do not use any random internet searches-it is a waste of time unless you are an expert and none of them would even start with the web except for general ideas. Go straight to our library’s webpage and search databases and books. There are millions of sources there, many of which can be read online.
Must Use at least 1-2 academic books/chapters (no text books), and 1-2 academic articles from peer reviewed journals.
Articles should be at least 10-20 pages for proper analysis. The JSTOR database is the best Valencia offers, also Project MUSE is good. Avoid ABC-CLIO and journals like “History Today” as they are often too Gen Ed (jr. high level).
Make sure secondary sources are up to date, 25-50 years old at most. Primary sources should be up to date as far as the edition they are printed in.
