The Library homework is an Annotated Bibliography. This will be created in stages and feedback will be given each week. Due dates for each part of the assignment are listed below. Each assignment will be uploaded to Google Drive.
You may choose to use Word (found on library computers) OR Pages (found on your iPad). If you choose to use Pages, please follow these steps (which you can also find in your class handout):
If you choose to use Word, save your document on the desktop or a thumb drive, then upload to Google Drive (see instructions in handout).
At each class, you will be adding to the previous document, so with each class you will be turning in a revised version of one Annotated Bibliography.
