Bibliography – Choosing General Reference Works
Due September 21st.
The first place to start researching a topic for your term paper is reliable books on the subject, and scholarly reference works. There is nothing wrong with going to an encyclopedia or the Internet for brief discussions of a topic, but these are NOT appropriate materials for including in the final bibliography of a term paper. Once you have decided on a topic, you must track down every available scholarly source that may be relevant to your research. there is no magic number (like 10) sources that qualifies as "enough". You must consult them all. If you have too many sources, narrow down the topic, or eliminate the sources which are not scholarly.
