Annotated Bibliographies Workshop

HSU Library
This workshop covers the basics of composing annotated bibliographies. We'll discuss how to use an annotated bibliography to summarize, evaluate and reflect on your sources in order to reach a fuller understanding of your research topic.


On the registration form please indicate if you are working on an annotated bibliography for a class or project, and, if so, which class. Please also indicate any questions you have about this type of writing and research task. (Note: Though we'll discuss basic formatting for annotated bibliographies, this workshop will not cover citation styles.)

Opera Workshop

Gist Hall Theater
March 26-29 Dido and Aeneas

Witches and lovers clash when HSU Opera Workshop presents the lively and tragic love story of Dido and Aeneas in a relatively short opera (about an hour) by Baroque era English composer Henry Purcell. Set in the ancient world of myth, Dido (played by Olivia Bright) is the widowed Queen of Carthage, and Aeneas (Alberto Rodriguez) is a legendary Trojan warrior. A sorceress (Lorena Tamayo) and her witches plot to drive them apart.

Directed by Elisabeth Harrington, this is a full production with a cast of 18 and an instrumental ensemble conducted by Paul Cummings. It runs March 26-28 at 7:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. on March 29.
8:00 pm
