Greek Mythology: Cite Your Sources

What is a Bibliography?

Definition: A list of writings (or other information resources) used or considered by an author in preparing a particular work.

(American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, ©1992)

Whenever you do research, you must give credit to those people who proposed unique ideas or provided special information that you incorporate into your research product. Often the supporting evidence you cite will come from the work of others. It is your responsibility to acknowledge the original authors or researchers for their words, ideas or images.

Your bibliography is an alphabetical listing of the resources you used in your research. You must include detailed information about each resource such as the author, title, publisher and copyright date. When no author is listed, then use the title of the resource to alphabetize your bibliography.

For this assignment you are required to submit a bibliography in the MLA format.

What is an Annotated Bibliography?

An Annotated Bibliography is just like a regular bibliography, but each citation includes a brief (usually 150 words) description and evaluation of that source. Writing annotations is challenging because they have to be brief, but also accurate and useful to the reader.
