First, it is sometimes called a working bibliography. “Bibliography” actually means a list of books, but the list includes whatever types of sources you might use in your paper–newspapers, journals, lectures, correspondence, interviews, charts, graphs, etc. Preliminary or working implies that the list is not final because research is a work in progress. For your bibliography, do not list every source that you have come across during research, you only list the TEN SOURCES that have the most potential for use in your paper.That means, for an argument paper, the source may contain information about how the topic became controversial, or it may provide the differences in people’s opinions on your topic. A more reliable article may show both sides of an argument–without favoring one side over the other (bias/prejudice). You want to collect authoritative, credible support that contains facts that can be verified. This may be in the form of statistics, quotes, research findings, polls conducted, etc. Reminder: Your TRAAP evaluation improves your skills for locating sources that are Timely, Relevant, Authoritative, Accurate, and Purposeful.A preliminary bibliography can also help you examine the breadth and depth of the research you’ve done. When you assemble all of the resources you’ve consulted into a bibliography, you are better able to answer some important questions about the scope of your research: Are there areas of your research question that you haven’t fully explored yet? Are there certain kinds of sources that you haven’t consulted that might hold new or different information about that question? Have you consulted enough recent sources on the question to provide accurate information?For organizational purposes, the list of source citations in the bibliography are ALWAYS alphabetized (ABC order).“Citing the source” or “making a source citation” means including information that is necessary for locating the source. The source information must be in the correct order (author, title, containers, volume and issue numbers, date, URL, etc.).Using the author’s last name, organize the sources in alphabetical (ABC) order. If there is no author, use the first important word of the title of the article (not a, an, and the) to alphabetize the source.For future reference: You will build your annotated bibliography from sources in this preliminary bibliography. Also, the “Works Cited” page of your research paper contains the final sources that you actually use in your paper.
