Annotated Bibliographies
  • annotated bibliographies are not necessarily better than enumerative ones
  • always review the introductory sections to see if the bibliography will suit your needs; how up-to-date is it?
  • how comprehensive?
    • are foreign languages included?
    • how is it organized? (by work? by year? by author?)
    • does it contain primary and secondary works?
    • does it have a good subject or author index?

  • Sir Walter Wilson Greg (1911)
