What is an annotated bibliography?

A

bibliography

is a list of sources one has used in researching a topic. They are also sometimes called “works cited.”

An

annotation

is a summery and/or an evaluation.

Thus. . .

Slide3

An annotated bibliography is

a list of sources that includes a summary and/or an evaluation of each source.

Slide4

According to your assignment, an annotatedbibliography should do the following:

Summarize

What is the main argument? What are the main points? What topics are covered? In short, what is the source about?

Access

Evaluate the source. Was it useful? Is it reliable? How does it compare to your other sources?

Reflect

How does the source fit into your research? Was it helpful? How does it affect your argument?

Slide5

Format

The first entry should be one double-spaced line below the title, which should be Annotated Bibliography. All other entries should follow in alphabetical order.

Each entry should follow the standard citation format according to MLA citation style.

Slide6

Format of the annotation

Each annotation should begin one double spaced line beneath each works cited entry.

Each annotation should follow standard paragraph format, beginning with an indention.

Each annotation should be roughly the same length so that each entry looks uniform.

Slide7

Example

Note that the annotation is aligned with the hanging indention of the work cited entry.

Slide8

Remember

An annotated bibliography is more than just a works cited page. The purpose of an annotated bibliography is not only to list your sources, but also to explain your research.
