Welcome to the library resource guide for Dr. Trevathan's ENGL 1001 class. This guide is meant to introduce you to research for your annotated bibliography.

Research requirements for your annotated bibliography:

  • 6 credible sources (reliable, critical sources found through the LSU Libraries)
    • 3 must be scholarly, peer-reviewed journal articles in academic journals
    • 3 should be trustworthy, respected sources from top-tier, major market, well-known popular newspapers, magazines, or other periodicals (e.g. New York Times, Wall Street Journal) 
  • No unauthorized websites, blogs, or reference sources (encyclopedias, Wikipedia, dictionaries, blogs, Spark notes, Shmoop, etc.)
  • References should be formatted according to APA style
