Liberty Biographical Research Paper Sources

Biographical Research Papers

BIBL 471 - Biblical Archaeology

Liberty University Students

Your assignment is to “explore the archaeological contributions of one archaeologist.” It is a biographical paper for the archaeology class so I expect to see the history of the archaeologist as it pertains to archaeology. For example, if you were writing on Yigal Yadin or T. E. Lawrence, I am not interested in their political or military careers, both of which were significant. You can mention these areas, perhaps in a short paragraph, but want to see more information on where they studied (archaeology), worked, excavated, and what they found.

Most Journal articles listed here are either available online at Liberty Library search LINK or through ILL using your ezproxy login. It is not advisable to use Wikipedia as some of the information is unreliable and can be misleading. Here is a link to reliable online resources including Bible Dictionaries and Encyclopedias that are made available through my BLOGAlso, be careful with older Encyclopedias and Dictionaries, as they could reflect outdated research. Also, the Google Books Preview and Amazon.com's Look Inside feature, can be a big help, if you watch carefully the quality of the books (from a publisher with University in the name i.e., Oxford University Press, Harvard, etc.). You may need to set up a Google account to view the pages but this is free. Sometimes pages unavailable through the Amazon Look Inside are available in Google Books and vice verse.

The following lists of resources are not exhaustive and you may use any additional academic resources you have available. You must use at least 6 sources (books or articles) for each paper. To the best of my knowledge the documentation is accurate, but if you notice a dead or broken link, please send me an email and I will attempt to repair it for other students. If you have any specific questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

: If you want the correct TURABIAN format in your paper you can copy and paste these items "as is" into your Bibliography, but do not copy the hyperlinks (i.e. LINK or JSTOR buttons). To create your footnotes some minor changes will be required. See Turabian help LINK


TIP: For the Turabian format all you need to do is copy and paste the following books or articles into your bibliography to preserve the proper format. Need more help with Turabian LINK
