For this assignment, search for five websites that are acceptable for use in a college-level history research paper. Wikipedia, History.com or any other encyclopedia or wiki-type site like about.com are NOT acceptable, sites that require a subscription are additionally NOT acceptable.
Write a paragraph for each website (five total approximately 200-250 words each) describe the contents of each website in detail, and why you think the site is acceptable for use in an academic research paper, using the information collected from the evaluation of the site.
Complete the following for your annotated webliography:
Provide a complete citation (as you would include it in your bibliography) for the site, including the URL and your date of access. Note that the required style for this class is Chicago Manual of Style.
Sometimes people confuse a web address with being the same as a website. This is not the case. Articles from journals or websites are NOT websites. Make sure you are clear as to what a website is. For example, msn.com, yahoo.com, or bbc.com are websites. Any article contained within them are not websites.
If the topic is contained within a part of the website then you must still evaluate the website as a whole for its suitability for use in a college level history research paper.
Additionally, some websites are not considered suitable for college-level research. Please find a list of the most common websites that are unacceptable for college-level work:
EXAMPLES OF UNACCEPTABLE WEB RESOURCES: AVOID THESE WEB SITES
For profit, commercialized sites that sell advertisements;
Private web resources were you can find nothing substantive about the author or the political philosophy or the private funding source;
The History Channel or any A&E Television material;
History.com or the Independence Hall Association (for profit)
Encyclopedia.com: it is a commercialized site that “uses” information from accredited sources. Go to the UMGC Library and ask the Librarian to help you find the relevant Oxford Companion to History series.
Britannica.com: See above. It sells ads and “uses” information from other sources.
About.com: not professional; commercialized;
History.org: a commercialized site;
HistoryNet.com: sells magazines;
YouTube, “home-made videos.” If the video comes from a scholarly source, it is acceptable.
