Instructions for annotated webliographies

 

1.  Each entry will include the title of the web page, title of the website, date of publication followed by date of access (or only date of access if a publication date is not listed), URL and any other information necessary to conform to MLA Works Cited (bibliography) conventions.  Frequently, you are able to copy-and-paste from the web site to your M.S. Word document if the title is text and not an image file.  If it is an image file (such as a logo) then type the page title.  Please remember that the first letter of each significant word of a title is capitalized. 

 

Example: 

"Memory Improvement Techniques." Mind Tools: Essential Tools for an Excellent Career. 27 March 2008 <http://www.mindtools.com/memory.html>.

 

Note: The page titles are displayed inside quotation marks, and the site title is displayed as Italicized text in an MLA-style works cited (bibliography) entry

 

2.  A two-sentence or three-sentence description of content.  Include in the description the “auspices” or the “authority” of the site where the information is located and make sure you write in complete, grammatically correct sentences.

 

Example:  This page, on the Mind Tools web site, includes over a dozen different techniques for memorizing. It is useful for test preparation and foreign language vocabulary building especially.  The page also links to other similar resources.

 

3.  Make sure the URL is a "hotlink" (i.e., it is "clickable"). Using M.S. Word if you press the space bar or enter key after you have pasted the URL, M.S. Word should automatically make it into a clickable link.  Example: http://www.mindtools.com/memory.html

 

4.  Make it neat and uniform!  After you have compiled all of your resources (at least 25), use the “select all” text function and make the text into Times New Roman, 12 point font size.  Boldface only the works cited entry .  Arrange each entry in alphabetical order under the (also alphabetized) appropriate section subheading.
