I was happy to finally hand in my annotated bibliography, even though I was a little nervous. This was the first annotated bibliography I have ever done and I was hoping I did everything right. The example on the course website was very helpful. I chose a topic relatively fast because I had a broad selection to choose from. I did it on animal testing because I felt there were a lot of sources on this topic. I found a lot of my information at the Joyner Library website. It was able to give me not only books, but magazines and other helpful sources. One of the most challenging parts of this paper was finding sources from 2008 to present. There were so many sources on animal testing but I had to limit it which made it harder to find fifteen sources. Also, another hard part was finding eight print sources. I had no problem finding all my other sources that came from the website. I enjoyed researching this topic because there were so many great points on either side concerning animal testing. The easiest part was summarizing my sources and writing what they were about. Even though it was pretty easy and straight forward instructions I was scared I messed up somewhere. I felt pretty good about my paper this time. Since we had to have fifteen sources, I knew I had to start early on this paper to do well. I gave myself enough time to find all my information so I was not stressed right at the last minute. I thought the annotated bibliography was easier for me to write because it wasnít an actual essay. I thought it was pretty easy to just summarize the information. I tried my best to just pick out the most important information and the main points. I also tried my best to address the audience for all fifteen sources. I think I am going to do my issue paper on the same topic so doing this annotated bibliography I believe is really going to help me out. I will already have all my sources ready to use.

    What did you find most challenging about the annotated bibliography? What did you find easiest about doing the annotated bib? Now that you have submitted it, how do you feel about your Ann. Bib?

      The most challenging part for me for writing this annotated bibliography was the beginning of doing my research trying to find sources, finding the first couple of sources. I felt I had a pretty easy ... more

      When given the annotated bibliography assignment originally, I was extremely intimidated. Fifteen seemed like an endless amount of sources and I could tell it was going to be tedious. Picking a topic ... more

      Nothing in the annotated bibliography was too overly difficult. It was a lot of repetition when writing the paragraph that followed the source. It just felt like I was almost saying the same thing... more

      The annotated bibliographies themselves were not as complicated as the MLA portion. This has been the struggle of the entire class it seems and it worries me because I followed the instructions on... more

      The most challenging guideline of the annotated bibliography was to find recent print sources. A lot more of the research done today is published online. Although a good portion of information can... more

      Overall, I liked writing the annotated bibliography because it was something different from the regular 5-7 page paperís that are assigned in English. I found that having to pull different... more

      Having now submitted my annotated bibliography, looking back on it I now realize it really was not all that bad. Before I wrote it, I was really scared of it. Just the title alone, annotated... more

      The overall most challenging thing about the annotated bibliography was making sure everything was perfect in the citations. I must have went back over it 5 times to make sure so hopefully it is... more

      When it comes to the annotated bibliography, one of the hardest things was just narrowing down a topic. It was very challenging deciding what would be appropriate, easy to find sources up to date,... more

      The annotated bibliography was challenging for me. Finding so many sources what fit my topic was hard because many were repetitive and did not bring anything to the table, so to speak. Because I want ... more
