PERSPECTIVES ON HISTORY
THE WORKING BIBLIOGRAPHY
A working bibliography is due in class on October 8. This is designed to allow me to make suggestions on the progress of your work.
The working bibliography should be divided into four parts:
I. Books that explore the context of the issue you are discussing. (at least 10)
II. Journal articles that consider the topic you are discussing. (10)
III. Primary sources you will consult in the researching of your paper. (10)
IV. Web sites (10)
Do not panic because of the numbers above! This exercise is designed to help you begin your research. You may not necessarily read --or even use--all the works cited. Yet, consulting them will help you begin your research process.
