My annotated bibliography topic is still in the process of being chosen. I still like my first topic which is the impact of paper on the environment, and I believe there will be adequate amounts of journal article sources. I was trying to choose a topic that would fit my issues paper as well but I am unsure of what topic I would like to pursue. I have chosen the impact of paper on the environment because I believe we should be worried about the environment. I had to research indigenous peoples and the impact deforestation had on their health and lifestyle last year in my anthropology class. Before doing the research, I had no idea that such things were happening in other countries to supply companies in America with product. I know that many companies and places are trying to conserve paper and resources by having electronic bills and documents instead of hard copies. I think that since it has become more of a concern lately it will be easy to find the required amount of sources and I may learn more. Also, there is a lot of pollution today that will impact the next generation and our (potential) children. Everyone seems to be going green these days, including East Carolina so it must be of some importance that the environment be taken care of besides common sense. I want to be able to explore the beauties of the world throughout my life without having to worry about forests disappearing and the creatures that inhabit them.
The library was informative about which tabs to use to find the correct information and correct sources. I could of figured it out on my own eventually but it was easier to listen to her inform the class about which web pages to visit and the citation maker is an excellent helper. I knew the library had a lot of sources but I did not know where to look for the different types. I think One Search will be beneficial and the other sources will help me once I get into nursing school. The instructor was really easy to understand as well.

Enjoy your Spring Break classmates and Mr. Bates! 
