for scholar and general audiences. This book covers the areas of health & fitness with sleep,
sleep in general, and sleep disorders.

and behavioral sciences that also publishes books worldwide, so I would count it as credible.

bibliographic essay.

Library list of online databases. This article is also intended to be for scholar audiences. The
subjects of this article include nature of sleep, sleep cycle, measuring sleepiness, evolution and
function of sleep and dreams.

Brain Basics: Understanding Sleep. (n.d.). Retrieved March 4, 2015, from


http://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/brain_basics/understanding_sleep.htm
This article was found online using Google to search for articles about sleep. The objective of
this article was to inform the readers about many different areas of sleep and sleep disorders, and
is also intended for the mainly general audiences.
This article is a very general article about the subject of sleep, and although it provides accurate
information, it is not as detailed. This article would be an okay but not great source to use in my
bibliographic essay.
Walker, M. (2010). Sleep-dependent memory processing. Retrieved March 30, 2015, from
Access Science.
This article was found in the Access Science database and was also intended for the
scholar audience. This article covers the information of sleep before learning, sleep after learning
consolidating memories and sleep to integrate and associate.
I would count this article as credible because it was published from the Sleep and
Neuroimaging Laboratory from the Department of Psychology at the University of California in
Berkeley California. Since none of the topics of this article relate to the topics of my
bibliographic essay, it would not be very useful in my research.

Kwan, S., Choe, J., & Seo, H. (2013). Sleep architecture analysis in Korean children with sleep
disorders. Journal of Pediatric Neurology, 11(3), 165-170. Retrieved March 30, 2015, from
CINAHL Complete.
This article was found in the Discovery Service online search database and is intended for
the scholar audience. This article a study of sleep disorders, physiopathology, infant sleep, and
physiology. The article analyzes sleep structure in children with sleep disorders and was is about
a study done on thirty-four children in Korea.
I would count this article as credible because it was published from the Department of
Pediatrics at the Kyungpook National University Hospital in Daegu, South Korea. Since the
article is about sleep disorders with in children and not about why we need sleep or the effects
sleep as on us, it would not be useful in my research.

Sleep. (2014). In Funk & Wagnalls New World Encyclopedia. Chicago: World Book.
This source was pulled from the Myers Online Library Discovery database. The intended
audience for this article are scholars. This article includes information about the typical sleep
cycle, stages of sleep, anomalies, sleep in animals, physiology and chemistry of sleep, functions
of sleep and sleep requirements, and sleep disorders.
This reference entry is from a published encyclopedia, so I would count it as credible. This
article is also very relevant to my bibliographic essay about why we need sleep. Since this area
covers a lot of different areas about sleep, it will be very helpful in my research for this type of
information.

Department of Neurosciences and Neurology, the Department of Biology, and the Department of
Pediatrics from Rutgers University-New Jersey and The College of New Jersey so I would count
it as credible. Since this article leans more toward the areas of sleep disorders it would not be as
useful in bibliographic essay.
