For the annotated bibliography I have chosen to research the topic of the effects anabolic steroids has on the human body specifically in the hormones. I want to find information on exactly what occurs with the hormones of the body to increase muscle strength and raise testosterone levels. I have chosen this topic because I enjoy researching items about health related topics and I also enjoy exercising. Because health and exercise come hand in hand I find that I will spend more time and effort in to writing this paper. Another reason why I chose this topic was just to learn really more about the topic. We have all heard of anabolic steroids and generally conclude it to be bad for us but if it is so bad for us why are body builders seeing significant results in strength from them and why are athletes continuously trying to find ways to illegally use them. I want to find out what exactly happens in the body in detail to fully understand why these steroids became and remain illegal in athletics. I have been to the library twice now for lectures on how to become better at searching and narrowing topics and I definitely have to say I got more out of the second lecture than the first lecture. This time around I took more in probably because I was more awake this lecture because it was at 10 instead of 8 in the morning and as a result of this I am more likely to get to the library to use these tools. With needing to find fifteen sources for our annotated bibliography utilizing the libraries search bars will be crucial to obtaining enough print sources. Although I have yet to make it to the library really at all this year I will soon learn that the tools in the library is where I should be spending most of my time if I want quality work. I plan on beginning this paper as soon as spring break is over and when writing the paper I plan on spending most of my time in the library.
