2 The Research Paper Bibliography Cards Note Cards

3 BIBLIOGRAPHY VS. NOTE CARDS Bibliography Cards = –Working Bibliography = all sources CONSULTED for use in research paper –Annotated Bibliography = bibliography cards include annotation or comments which answer 4 questions What it the main subject of the source? Who is the main audience of the source? Give a brief summary of the information. Point out special features of the source. (i.e. photos, data, links to related sources) Note Cards = notes from the sources that you use in your research Why is this important? How will you use this information (or think you will use it?) How does this information relate to what you already know? Is it just a repeat of something else?)

4 Bibliography Cards Electronic cards will be made in Microsoft PowerPoint Keep information about your sources VERY IMPORTANT!!! You will need a minimum of 10 sources for your working bibliography Your working bibliography is to be mostly done before you begin writing your paper.

5 BIBLIOGRAPHY CARDS

6 Info on a bibliography card Each source gets their own card Label each with a letter of the alphabet A The letter should go in the upper right corner of the card

7 INFORMATION NEEDED FOR CITATION Author Title Editor, translator, and/or edition number Publisher, city of publication, year of publication Issue number Volume Page numbers Call number of book or URL Search terms used to find source Date found A This information is to be listed for all sources whether needed in final citation or not. If not applicable, put N/A.

8 Then you will put the information about the source on the card in the correct order based on: This is called MLA formatting A Smith, John. The life of J.D. Salinger. New York: Paradise Publishing, Info goes in a very certain order… This VERY important later!!! DO IT RIGHT!

9 Write a brief summary of what is in the source. This helps you remember what the book is about. Answer the questions about what the purpose of this source is. –What is the main subject of the source? –Who is the main audience of the source? –Give a brief summary of the information. –List special features of the source. A Smith, John. The life of J.D. Salinger. New York: Paradise Publishing, This source creates a continuum of my author’s life from teen years to adulthood. It is written for children. The author did many things from age This source has photos of the author.

10 Lastly, you need to write where you got the source (unless it is a website) This helps you remember where to find the book again if you need to. A Smith, John. The life of J.D. Salinger. New York: Paradise Publishing, Talks about Salinger’s early life before he became famous IUPUI library

11 SUPPLEMENTAL BIBLIOGRAPHY This would be on the back of index cards in traditional research methods The purpose of this is for you to assess the usefulness of the source and to reflect on its appropriateness –ASSESSMENT: Is this a useful source? How does it compare w/ other sources? Is the information reliable? Is the source biased or is it objective? –REFLECTION: Is this source helpful? How does it help shape your argument or topic? How can you use this source in your paper? Has it changed how you think about your topic?

14 Differentiate between summarizing, paraphrasing and copying directly from the source & document appropriately –Some researchers will put summarized text in one color or font, paraphrased information in another color or font, and copied information in a 3 rd color or font –THE ONLY WAY TO AVOID PLAGIARISM IS TO KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE COPIED FROM THE ORIGINAL SOURCE!
