Welcome to the course guide for ENGL:2359:0001 Remarkable Women: Victorian Narratives of Quest and Transformation, Spring 2021, with Dr. Anne Stapleton.
This guide provides assistance with starting your research, writing an annotated bibliography, and citing articles and books using MLA style.
The research tab is intended to help you get started, indicate which databases might prove most helpful for primary and secondary sources, and provide other ideas and links to facilitate your quest. You are not required to use the examples provided under each group tab and should definitely research beyond them.
The annotated bibliography and citation tabs are intended to facilitate your preparation of the annotated bibliography due the day you give your presentation with fellow group members.
