For my annotated bibliography I went back and forth from several different topics but I have decided to talk about alcohol abuse in colleges as the topic. I know that I will not be able to use this information in my argument paper because there is no positive side to alcohol abuse but it is a topic that needs to be noticed. At first I was just going to do alcohol abuse but then I realized that it was too broad of a topic so I narrowed it down. I chose this topic because teen drinking and alcohol abuse by college students is becoming more and more prevalent in the media. ECU itself is also criticized for the amount of drinking that its students do but it is important to realize that it happens everywhere. Numbers of alcohol related accidents and deaths continue to rise as the amount of alcohol consumed by students also continues to grow. Since I am a college student I witness people who abuse alcohol on a regular basis and many do not realize the consequences. Alcohol obviously impairs a personís judgment which can lead to immediate consequences but later in life continued heavy drinking can cause problems with the liver and other organs. Drinking at an early age also increase the chance that a person will become dependent on alcohol as they grow older. Most of the accidents that occur under the influence could be prevented. The number of violent acts can also be directly linked to the sobriety of those involved. If the problem of alcohol abuse is not controlled the situation could truly get out of hand and I believe it is a topic that cannot be ignored. Going to the library really helped me realize what I needed to do. The database site that she showed us was a life saver! I am feeling so much more confident about what I am doing now that she showed us all of those places to get our sources. Sources were the main thing that I was worried about finding since we had to find more than the previous paper. The example of the annotated bibliography that is on the course website was very helpful to show how much information that you were looking for and it also showed what the information should be about.

    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.
