What is an annotated bibliography and how do I make one?
A bibliography is a list of resources used in your research. Each bibliography entry is called a citation. An annotated bibliography is something extra, it includes a paragraph for each citation that summarizes and evaluates the resource. Each paragraph is called an annotation.
Things to put in each annotation include:
- a summary of the resource
- information on the author’s background
- highlight possible biases of the source
- describe strengths / weaknesses of the source
- whether the resource was useful for the assignment
