Step 1 – Keyword Searching – Find one Book, One Book Review, One Abstract, Create a Bibliography, Write an explanation as to why you chose the book.
Step 1.1 – Choose an eBook in the UMGC Library.
There are several ways to find eBooks in the UMGC Library.
· Begin with a “keyword search.”
· Pick three keywords based on the list provided above to find a book.
· Alternatively, go to the top of the page > Library and Click on Resources > Click on > What other e-book collections are available? There you will find another list of full-text books.
· The chosen book must use foot/endnotes; it must have a bibliography and an index. It should be no less than four chapters in length with an introduction and conclusion.
· If your book has more than five chapters, after the intro and conclusion, you will select three chapters that appeal to your interests for analysis under BR 4.
· If you are savvy, you will look to the right of the page and see the term “Cite.” Go to Cite > Chicago/Turabian Humanities > Click on this link. There, you will see an almost correct Chicago citation bibliographical citation. Somehow, the person who created the citation reversed the order of the names. It should read – last name, first name.
Step 1.2 – Find a Book Review Using “keywords”
· The chosen book must have a book review and it should be 200 pages or more in length.
· Finding a review for your book is as essential as finding a book that fits your interests.
· To find a review go to Nav Bar > Resources > Library > One Search > Advanced.
· This time the keywords must include the short title to your book and the author’s name.
· See the example:

· Save the book reviews to your computer.
· Create bibliographical and footnote entries for the reviews.
Step 1.3– Read, record, copy, paste, and document the abstract of your book with a footnote.
The abstract can be taken from the library description of the book and copied and pasted right onto the Word document. Just remember to place the abstract in quotation marks and add a footnote outside of the quotation marks!
Step 1.4 – Create a bibliography showing the book and review articles.
· Remember the bibliography must be alphabetized by the last name of each author in the list.
The standard bibliographical form is: Last name, First name. Title of the Book. City of Publication: Publisher, Year of publication.
To write a bibliographical entry for a book, identify and record each component of the book’s pedigree (so to speak). Be careful! Watch the punctuation marks.
Last name, First name. Title of the Book. City of publication: Publisher, YEAR.
To write a bibliographical entry for a journal article, observe each component and punctuation marks.
Last name, First name. “Title of the Article.” Title of the Journal Volume (Year): page number.
Step 1.5 – Write a summary (three to five sentences) explaining why you chose this book.
· Write a personal summary explaining why you chose this topic.
· Save this document in a folder titled HIST 337 Book Review and name the file: Step 1 JSN (these are your three initials).
 UMGC holds multiple eBook collections. You may choose a book from all that are available. If you wish to purchase your own book for this assignment, that is perfectly fine as well. But the purchase of a book is not required.
