Hartley Oscillator

I'm working on an electronics project for an electronics course I am taking. I need to design a common-emitter hartley oscillator using a 3904 BJT. Does anyone know of some good resources I could use for this project? The book we use has very little information on hartley, or colpitts, oscillators. I have a certain frequency it must operate at and a certain peak to peak output voltage, across a 4.7kOhm load, that I must design the oscillator for. I believe my partner has on older electronics book that has information, but I want to get as much information as I can and start the design process.

Greetings ElectrEng08,

Based on your comments, I have moved your post to the Homework Forum since as you have stated, it is an assignment for your electronics course.
