The bibliography must include the following:
Minimum requirements for different types of sources that must be included within the total of 7:
DIRECTIONS FOR CREATING YOUR WEB PAGE
Organize the citations for all of the required sources into a single list in alphabetical order using MLA format following the directions below (using the Model Bibliography as a template). This is the same as writing a paper with Microsoft Word except you will save your file as a web page and you will create hyperlinks to web pages and to articles from databases, as explained below.
To develop your final project into a web page, you should:
a. Type in the URL (web address) for the webpage or article. Be sure to always start a URL with: http:// and end with a space.
If you follow step a. correctly, Microsoft Word should automatically make the address a hyperlink and this will be indicated by the URL becoming blue underlined letters. If this does not work for some reason, or if you want to make any other words that do not start with http:// into a hyperlink, follow steps b - d below.
b. Highlight the URL or other words that you want to make into a hyperlink.
c. Use the Insert pull-down menu and click on Hyperlink (Ctrl-K is a short cut)
d. In the box that says "Address," enter the URL (web address) for the webpage or article you want to link to. Be sure to always start a URL with: http://
NOTE: For database articles that have
very long URLs (e.g. an InfoTrac article address such
you may shorten the URL for your bibliography (e.g., <http://infotrac.galegroup.com> ), but you must include the complete URL in the hyperlink address box.
E-mail your final project web page—saved in Word as a web page (*.html file)—as an attached file to: Eric Brenner at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are not sure how to send an email message with an attachment, please contact your instructor for help.
