Assignment Description (Annotated Bibliography)

As you prepare for your future, you will want to stay up-to-date on your career field by reading, saving current articles, and bookmarking valuable resources. Think about a current business topic related to your professional field that you would like to learn more about. This is your chance to learn more about, gather tips and strategies about, and follow current trends in your field of interest.

Your task: look for three current (within the last two years) secondary research sources on a topic related to your field of study using Galileo either online through the BSC library or go to the library. In a memo or email to your instructor (posted in this discussion forum), write a one-paragraph summary of each article or resource. Then list the citations of your three resources, using MLA standards. The citations should follow the format used on a works cited page with citations in alphabetical order and using the hanging indent style.

Campus librarians and I will assist you with this assignment or you may follow MLA guidelines at Purdue OWL
