An annotated bibliography is a list of citations with an added summary. The citations can be to any resource relevant to your topic and assignment criteria. The summary is a brief (about 150 words) description and evaluation of the resource to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy and quality of the sources you are citing.
- Find sources relevant to your topic
- Read and evaluate each resource
- Create your works cited list
- For each citation, write a brief analytical summary which may include:
- How does this resource support your topic?
- Intended audience of resource
- Compare or contrast with your other resources
- Evaluate the author
