  2. Hi, Navni – this is a great start on your resources!

    Thanks for making hot links to the online articles and databases (your fellow researches thank you in advance) and alerting readers that this comes from the UW library. Remember to link to an abstract and not the home page (the last source). If there is a DOI, it’s helpful to include it, too. Also, remember to include the access date for any sources that are on the public web; it provides a temporal marker in the sand, so to speak, should someone try to access the article and the link is 404. When you revise these annotations for your final deliverable, remember to add how the source informed your research.

    The citation format is consistent but not APA. Oh, and we don’t number them, but we do put them in alphabetical order by last name of the first author.
