Annotated Bibliography

Search tips: When searching for a specific author, search for the last name only (due to the format of APA citations, the first name is not included, and therefore a full name search will yield no results). For example, a search for "Karen Rogers" does not return any results, but a search for "Rogers" returns several citations. Although it may seem counterintuitive, entering fewer search terms will yield more results.
