Geography 207 -- Spring 2003
Building a Resource Page
Due: Tuesday of 3rd week [for other (due-date) details, see bottom of this page]
Themes or Topics:
The focus of the assignment should be the assembly and organization of potentially diverse resources related to your areas of interest as well as all the resources you have gathered as part of your discussion/portfolio-related research.
Process for Building your Resource Page:
There will be ample opportunity to work on this assignment during the remaining weeks of this quarter. Apply your already existing resource skills and develop new ones in the context of your discussion topic. The length of the ultimate "Resource Page" should be the equivalent of approximately 2 regular pages with at least 20 references, ten of which should be annotated (at least two sentences, one related to the content, the other to its relevance for your research interests). It will be due, in digital form, as part of your final portfolio.
For starters (i.e. for the assignment for Tuesday of the 3rd week),
establish the beginnings of this page by finding and organizing at least
references (including five which you need to annotate) from
different types of sources
related to those of your interests which you associate with this class and
this Resource Page.
Your Resource Page should contain appropriate bibliographical (including Internet) references to publications which are informative to you, to your class-related interests and to other students "out there". These references should be
One third to one half of your references should be "annotated". By "annotation" we want to understand at least two sentences formulated by you, one sentence describing the content of the document, another to spell out the role which this document has played or will play in the research of your area(s) of interests ("What will it do for you?").
Your Resource Page(s) should NOT be an undifferentiated list of references, but a well organized systems of useful resources. Please organize these resources on the basis of an (at least) two-tier schemes of subheadings. You decide which to use and which to use as the higher-order tier and which for the lower-order. The following types of sub-divisions come to mind:
Please identify those items or references which you have actually consulted, i.e. you have checked them out or seen the original in its entirety, and have read at least parts of it.
To make sure that all of your sources are cited correctly, let's explore briefly those established rules (for paper publications) and the emerging ones (for Internet publications). First of all here is a general link to citation rules. http://faculty.washington.edu/~krumme/esurvival.html#citing. More specifically:
The samples below indicate how citations of particular electronic sources might be made:

For our Resource Page, the URL or the title of the document should be linked (i.e. "clickable").
