What is an annotated bibliography?
It is a list of sources (such as books, journals, and websites) that cover the topic you have chosen to research. Each source listed is followed by a paragraph that summarizes and evaluates the source. In your summary, be sure to address the reasons why you selected the particular article.
- summarize the article's main points
- describe the currency, relevancy, and accuracy of the article
- discuss the purpose of the article and intended audience
- mention how the article helps you understand the topic
