Annotated bibliography

 

Write an annotated bibliography
• An annotated bibliography deals in some detail with a number of books and articles that you have read.
• You should generally aim to provide a descriptive and an evaluative paragraph for each of the references you deal with.
• The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the content, relevance, accuracy and quality of the sources cited.

What you should include
• Summary: What are the main arguments? What is the point of this book or article? What topics are covered? If someone asked what this article/book is about, what would you say?
• Assessment: Is it a useful source? How does it compare with other sources in your bibliography? Is the information reliable? Is it this source biased or objective? What is the goal of this source?
• Reflection: Was this source helpful to you? How does it help you shape your argument? How can you use this source in your research project? Has it changed how you think about your topic?

Purpose
• To learn about your topic: Writing an annotated bibliography is excellent preparation for a research project. You begin to read more critically instead of just collecting information.
• To help you formulate a thesis: Every good research paper has an argument. The purpose of research is to state and support a thesis. Thus, a very important part of research is developing a thesis that is debatable, interesting, and current.
• To help other researchers: Extensive and scholarly annotated bibliographies provide a comprehensive overview of everything that has been and is being said about that topic.
