ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY

Step One: Locate and record citations to books, periodicals, and documents that may contain useful information and ideas on your topic. After perusing the materials, select works that provide a variety of perspectives on your topic.

Step Two: Cite the book, article, or document using the MLA style format.

Step Three: Write a concise annotation (5-7 sentences) that addresses the following:

  • Evaluate the authority or background of the author(s). Why are they experts? How do you know that this is a reliable and unbiased source? 
  • Summarize the central theme and scope of the book or article.
  • Explain how this particular source will provide something that your other sources do not. (Essentially, avoid redundancy!) 
  • Explain how this information will help you with your project.
