Develop Search Terms

To start this assignment, complete the Generating Search Terms worksheet. The Generating Search Terms worksheet will help you select the major concepts in your revised research question. Note: You will not submit this worksheet, but will need it for Step 2.

Find Two Scholarly Journal Articles and One E-Book

Now you are ready to search for scholarly journal articles and one e-book. Review the steps for using FindIt@AU by completing the GEN 103: Introduction to the Ashford University Library (Links to an external site.) tutorial.

  • Consult with Ashford Library Chat (Links to an external site.) to find relevant search results. You will select your first scholarly journal article from these results.
    • Bring your revised research question and two to five search terms to the chat session.
    • Once the chat sessions ends, a transcript of your chat will be sent to the e-mail address you’ve provided. You will include the chat transcript as part of the assignment.
    • Download and save the full text article so you can review it later.

Write Annotations for These Sources

Now, you will write annotations for the two scholarly articles and one e-book. Write the annotations in your own words on the Library Sources Annotated Bibliography template. The annotations must be two paragraphs long and must address the points below. Provide brief descriptions or explanations to support your answers:

Paragraph 1: Summarize

  • What is the thesis or main claim of the source?
  • What evidence or claims does the source present in support of the thesis? Present at least two examples of support the source uses.

  • How credible and authoritative is the source for your research question?
  • What limitations, if any, did you note in the source?
