Research BibliographySubmit AssignmentDue Friday by 11:59pm Points 75 Submitting a website url, a media recording, or a file uploadOverviewThe purpose of this assignment is to demonstrate competency in using the library for academic research and to compile a list (bibliography) in MLA format of potential sources you might use for your research essay. The research bibliography is a very common academic genre that demonstrates that you have conducted significant and in-depth research on your research question, and therefore are poised to write about it with credibility, accuracy, and precision.ProcessA good guideline for finding sources for an academic research essay is that you should closely evaluate in detail three times as many sources as you will end up using. For instance, for a biology lab report where you are required to use two scientific studies as support, you would closely evaluate six studies on your topic to decide which is the most relevant to your specific experiment. If you were writing an ethics position paper on climate change and you were required to use four peer-reviewed academic journal articles, you would need to closely evaluate twelve articles that address your central idea in order to decide which four would be most effective in your essay. This process of careful evaluation should be applied to any academic context where you are required to use primary and/or secondary sources to address a specific assignment or topic.For our final assignment, an academic research essay, the potential sources you choose to evaluate closely should help you to advocate for the best ‘answer’ to your research question(s). Depending on your topic and your academic context, choose the option below that will help you most effectively provide evidence for your research project. One option isn’t ‘better’ or ‘easier’ than the other–they simply serve different needs.You will submit two things for this assignment:You may use the library at any campus location.
