Writing 100 (Soltis): Home

A research guide for Prof Mary Soltis's WRI 100 course


The contents of this guide will give you useful advice and pointers on researching and writing annotated bibliographies and literature reviews. Here is where you'll find short videos on database selection and database use, guides to literature review design, the difference between an annotated bibliography and a literature review, and more. You'll also see information about citation formatting, choosing a citation format, the elements of a good cite, and other useful information, under the "Taking the guesswork out of citation formatting" tab.

You'll find more ways to get help from a librarian under the "Need help?" tab above. And if there's something that's unclear, or you want some personalized guidance, please feel free to contact me! My contact information is on the right.
