I have chosen Genetically Modified Food to be my topic for the annotated bibliography. I chose the topic because it is somewhat controversial. Adding chemicals to the food people eat is something that many people find unfavorable. I want to examine where biotechnology might be pressing it's limits in the modified food regard. I also know that there is a lot of research that has been done that is relevant to this topic because it is an issue in today's world more so than before. I might even decide to narrow the topic down and only focus on a particular food. The economy is tight, food producers do not have the resources or capital to continuously supply food all across the United States. Adding chemicals to the food that preserve it for longer so that it is able to travel across the country is a strategy that many corporations find advantageous to them. Of course, there are several arguments one could pose against that. Another reason I wanted to do this topic is because in addition to seeing it in the news every once in a while, we recently explored it in my biology class. Biology is an extremely boring topic in my opinion but for some reason this particular discussion intrigued me. Therefore, I think finding out more information on the issue could possibly be interesting to me. Obviously this should help because it sucks to have to write and/or research something that just has no appeal at all.
The session at the library actually helped me out a lot. Finding the right sources for the last paper was a challenge for me and I had no idea how to use the library resources. When we did the search about our own topics I found a couple articles I could use and I fully intend on going back to find more. I will likely go back again to ask one the librarians to again just briefly show me certain things like the database search. I think it is very useful to have those resources though and I am somewhat disappointed that I am only finding out how to utilize them now.

Hope you have a good break.

    What topic have you chosen for the Annotated Bib? Why have you chosen this topic? What, if anything, did you find useful about the library instruction class? Have a great and safe Spring Break.
