Annotated Bibliography: As mentioned in the Module 3 presentation, a good annotated bibliography should include the citations for each source (at least four) you plan to cite in your paper (all should be credible, scholarly sources), a 1-2 sentence summary of the source, a 1-2 sentence evaluation of the source (accuracy, recency, bias, reliability, etc.), and how the source is relevant to your paper (what point would it help support or opposing views does it reveal?). See pp. 3-4 of the Online Writing Center’s annotated bibliography resource as an example of how to structure your bibliography, though be sure to use your discipline’s own citation style. No abstract needed prior to your annotations.
