How to Prepare an Annotated Bibliography: The Annotated
Bibliography

Explanation, Process, Directions, and Examples

WHAT IS AN ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY?

An annotated bibliography is a list of citations to books, articles, and documents. Each citation is followed by a brief (usually about 150 words) descriptive and evaluative paragraph, the annotation. The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited.


ANNOTATIONS VS. ABSTRACTS

Abstracts are the purely descriptive summaries often found at the beginning of scholarly journal articles or in periodical indexes. Annotations are descriptive and critical; they may describe the author's point of view, authority, or clarity and appropriateness of expression.


THE PROCESS

Creating an annotated bibliography calls for the application of a variety of intellectual skills: concise exposition, succinct analysis, and informed library research. BOOK, ARTICLE, OR DOCUMENT/annotated-bibliographies/arch tobyyou’vedoes that really tell a researcher or reader about the sources

themselves?











An annotated bibliography provides specific information about each source
you have used. As a researcher, you have become an expert on your topic:
you have the ability to explain the content of your sources, assess their
usefulness, and share this information with others who may be less
familiar with them.”

Annotated Bibliography

Use the links below to learn how to write an annotated bibliography.

An annotated bibliography is an organized list of sources, each of which is followed by a brief note or "annotation."

These annotations do one or more of the following:

  • describe the content and focus of the book or article

  • suggest the source's usefulness to your research

  • evaluate its method, conclusions, or reliability

  • record your reactions to the source.

University of Maryland Libraries
http://www.umuc.edu/library/libhow/bibliography_tutorial.cfm

“Types of annotated bibliographies

There are two major types of annotated bibliographies:

Descriptive or informative
Analytical or critical

Descriptive or informative

A descriptive or informative annotated bibliography describes or
summarizes a source as does an abstract, it describes why the source is
useful for researching a particular topic or question, its distinctive
features. In addition, it describes the author’s main arguments and
conclusions without evaluating what the author says or concludes.

snip

Analytical or critical

An analytical or critical annotation not only summarizes the material, it
analyzes what is being said. It examines the strengths and weaknesses of
what is presented as well as describing the applicability of the author’s
conclusions to the research being conducted.

For most of your annotated bibliographies, however, you will be writing
analytical or critical annotations.”

"One of the reasons behind citing sources and compiling a general
bibliography is so that you can prove you have done some valid research to
back up your argument and claims. Readers can refer to a citation in your
bibliography and then go look up the material themselves. When inspired by
your text or your argument, interested researchers can access your
resources. They may wish to double check a claim or interpretation you've
made, or they may simply wish to continue researching according to their
interests. But think about it: even though a bibliography provides a list
of research sources of all types that includes publishing information, how
much does that really tell a researcher or reader about the sources
themselves?

http://writingcenter.unc.edu/handouts/annotated-bibliographies/

An annotated bibliography provides specific information about each source
you have used. As a researcher, you have become an expert on your topic:
you have the ability to explain the content of your sources, assess their

How to Use the United States Government Agency Section
of the Statistics Resources Research Guide for Statistical

Data Sources for Specific Topic Searches

Finding and using statistical sources is a challenge for most students and many researchers.
Finding government statistical sources are even more of a befuddlement.
Requests for govenment information, let alone statistics, have dwindled in recent years in live
reference situations. Providing a tool that shows, agency by agency, where government
statistics hide in a group of links to database search results contributes to statistical literacy
and to information literacy for government statistical sources and to the uses for government
statistics.

Even though the actual publications found in these searches are not free, all of the databases
used are. Over fifty government agencies of the United States federal government are now
included and this is a work in progress as is the entire statistics resource guide. United States
government agencies do provide statistical data for other countries.

Many teachers tell students not to use Google for serious research as I religiously did until
October 2014 when I saw one web address on the MedLib-L discussion group. I have no idea
what the post was about, I just noticed one web address and as the lesson evolved, I started
joining the students rather than trying to change them in regards to using Google Web Search
as part of my database searching research tool.

The annotations: The annotations for each source are written in paragraph
form. The lengths of the annotations can vary significantly from a couple
of sentences to a couple of pages. The length will depend on the purpose.
If you’re just writing summaries of your sources, the annotations may not
be very long. However, if you are writing an extensive analysis of each
source, you’ll need more space.”

“One of the reasons behind citing sources and compiling a general
bibliography is so that you can prove you have done some valid research to
back up your argument and claims. Readers can refer to a citation in your
bibliography and then go look up the material themselves. When inspired by
your text or your argument, interested researchers can access your
resources. They may wish to double check a claim or interpretation you’ve
made, or they may simply wish to continue researching according to their
interests. But think about it: even though a bibliography provides a list
of research sources of all types that includes publishing information, how
much does that really tell a researcher or reader about the sources
themselves?

An annotated bibliography provides specific information about each source
you have used. As a researcher, you have become an expert on your topic:
you have the ability to explain the content of your sources, assess their
usefulness, and share this information with others who may be less
familiar with them.”

“Types of annotated bibliographies

There are two major types of annotated bibliographies:

Descriptive or informative
Analytical or critical

Descriptive or informative

A descriptive or informative annotated bibliography describes or
summarizes a source as does an abstract, it describes why the source is
useful for researching a particular topic or question, its distinctive
features. In addition, it describes the author’s main arguments and
conclusions without evaluating what the author says or concludes.

snip

Analytical or critical

An analytical or critical annotation not only summarizes the material, it
analyzes what is being said. It examines the strengths and weaknesses of
what is presented as well as describing the applicability of the author’s
conclusions to the research being conducted.

For most of your annotated bibliographies, however, you will be writing
analytical or critical annotations.”
