Annotated Bibliography

What's an Annotated Bibliography?

 

Bibliography

Means you make a list of sources of information (articles, books, etc.) about a specific topic, cited in a standard citation style (like MLA) and alphabetized.

 

Annotated

Means you write a NOTE under each article, book, or item listed, that explains what it is about and how it will be used in the assignment or research essay.

 

How do I make one?

 

Step 1: Get citations

Gather all your sources (articles, books, websites, etc.) and create their citations in MLA.

You can use the citation tools from the databases, but remember to COPY/PASTE & CORRECT, or check with a librarian.

 

Step 2: List your citations

List the citations in alphabetical order, in a page titled "Annotated Bibliography".

The citations should be indented with a "hanging indentation" and double spaced, with no extra spaces between lines.

 

Step 3: Write notes

Under each citation, write a paragraph that summarizes what's about, explains how it's useful for your topic, what part of the article you are going to use, etc.

Important: Your professor usually gives you directions on what they want you to write in the notes/annotations. Check their instructions!
