An Annotated Bibliography is finding and analyzing resources that could be useful for a future research project. You will list your sources, cite them using MLA formatting, and organize them alphabetically. Underneath each of your sources you need to write 150+ words summarizing your source, how it is relevant to your subject, and explaining why it is or is not a useful source for you.
Check the OWL Purdue site for the what an annotated bibliography is, as well as samples and examples on content and formatting. Here’s UVU’s handout for Annotated Bibliographies, including formatting.
8 citations with annotation.
6 scholarly sources (journals articles, books)
2 other kinds of sources (primary, documentary, etc.)
The citation of the source in the correct MLA format.
150+ words in each annotation (not including the citation).
A Summary of the source.
Who, what, where, why, when?
An Assessment of the source.
Is it reliable and relevant within the field?
An Evaluation of the source.
How is it relevant to your work?
