The Annotated Bibliography


WHAT IS AN ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY?

  • An annotated bibliography is a list of citations to books, articles, and documents.

  • Each citation is followed by a brief (usually about 100-150 words) Summary and response paragraph, the annotation.

  • The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited.


What are Annotated Bibliographies used for?

  • Doctors: they don’t have time to read every article that comes out, so a focused annotated bibliography allows doctors to decide which articles need closer perusal.

  • Book Reviews for booksellers, librarians, and teachers

  • Teachers use them for lists of books on a particular topic

  • Video Gamers use them to decide which games they want to buy

  • Music fans use them to decide which albums to buy


How to create one

  • Find resources about your topic

  • Summarize the information in the article

  • Cite the article

  • Evaluate the article

    • Authority of the author

    • Does the article work for the intended audience

    • Is this an informative article or a waste of the reader’s time? Why?

    • How does this work relate to and illuminate your topic?
