You will identify an important figure in American history from the American National Biography Online database, available through the Liberty Library, and write a one-page biography of that individual.
· Biography 2 must address an individual who was important in U.S. history after 1945.
In the biography, you will properly cite the American National Biography Online at the top and write a full, 1-page summary. The summary should not include any footnotes or other citations.
After writing the summary, you will create a bibliography that identifies three scholarly books using the Liberty University Online Library search engine and/or WorldCat (www.worldcat.org), three scholarly articles using JSTOR, Academic Search Complete, Academic OneFile, and/or Summon (found in Liberty Library’s databases), and three reputable websites to create a bibliography related to the subject of your biography. The use of current Turabian formatting in your bibliography is required.
The purposes of this assignment are to teach you about important figures in U.S. history, introduce you to the process of finding different sources available through Liberty University, and help you learn the importance of proper formatting.
SPECIFIC POLICIES FOR THE BIOGRAPHIES
