For my annotated bibliography I am thinking about doing it on ďtechnology and romantic relationships.Ē I was also going to use this for the other paper we have to do and definitely think it would be both useful and beneficial if I used the same topic for my annotated bibliography so I could have a better understanding on the topic and be more prepared for when it comes time to write the paper. I just recently did a research project on abusive relationships and technology, but think I would be able to find more information on technology and romantic relationships instead, since I was the first one to do a study on abusive relationships and technology. I know a lot about abusive relationships and technology, but not so much on regular relationships. I am interested in learning more about it, mostly because of pure interest not because of my major (sociology). Published articles would probably be most useful for my topic, considering there are most likely a lot of studies done on the effects of technology (cell phones, email, Facebook) on relationships whether it is family or romantic relationships. I also to expect to find some information in textbooks such as my Courtship and Marriage textbook for one of my classes that would have a lot of useful information about technology and relationships. Iím looking forward to the instructional library session on Monday because I donít know much about the library and all its resources. In high school we had a similar session, but all they really taught us was how to find books and where to look them up at. Iíd like to know more about how to access all the different databases and how to search for a topic that is narrow. Itís easy to search for something broad like we did on our first paper because there is so much information that touches on all areas of the subject. Iíve always had a hard time finding information on topics that are narrower. I either find something completely irrelevant, or have to search through five pages first to get to something remotely close to what I am looking for. I think the library session will be very beneficial not only for my paper, but as a tool I can use throughout my college career.
