Annotated Bibliography

Paper , Order, or Assignment Requirements

Annotated Bibliography (SLOs 1 ¬ 2, 5 ¬ 6) As a final research assignment for the course, you are required to write an Annotated Bibliography. A bibliography is a list of sources (books, journals, websites, periodicals, etc.) one has used for researching a topic. Bibliographies are sometimes called “References” or “Works Cited” depending on the style format you are using. A bibliography usually just includes the bibliographic information (i.e., the author, title, publisher, etc.). An annotation is a summary and/or evaluation. Therefore, an annotated bibliography includes a summary and/or evaluation of each of the sources. Your Annotated Bibliography must include five (5) sources. At least two (2) sources must be books, and at least one (1) of the remaining three (3) sources must be from an academic journal. Once you have chosen a topic and located five (5) sources on that topic, summarize and evaluate those sources in the following ways: Summarize : Some annotations merely summarize the source. 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? The length of your annotations will determine how detailed your summary is. Assess : After summarizing a source, it may be helpful to evaluate it. Is it a useful source? How does it compare with other sources in your bibliography? Is the information reliable? Is this source biased or objective? What is the goal of this source? Reflect : Once you’ve summarized and assessed a source, you need to ask how it fits into your research. 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? Your Annotated Bibliography must be typed, double¬spaced, and use MLA citation . Use bold font for your citations. You must also read the full description of this assignment by clicking on “Annotated Bibliography”, which is listed in the week it is due on the course website. There you will find further instructions for proper format, including an example of how your 5¬source Annotated Bibliography should look. It also provides information on choosing a topic, research assistance from the campus library, and citation assistance from Purdue University
