1 How to Write an Annotated Bibliography
Sage Library Newbury Park High School

2 What is it? An annotated bibliography is a list of sources (books, journals, websites, periodicals, etc.) one has used for researching a topic that includes a summary and evaluation of each of the sources.

3 Purpose The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited.

4 Excellent Preparation
When you have to write annotations for each source, you're forced to read each source more carefully. You begin to read more critically instead of just collecting information.

5 Format of the citation MLA style
Double space and use the hanging indent. Include a medium designation such as print or web.

6 Format of the annotation
Single space Use the third person – do not use “I..” Use the literary present tense. Examples: “This article discusses…” “In this article the author supports…” “This book gives a detailed view on…” “This article describes…”

7 Format Source #1 Citation
One paragraph –specifically what was learned that further expanded ideas about my thesis or clarified questions about my book. Paraphrased notes (page numbers from books) Direct quotations – statements that are written in a way that they would lose impact if I tried to paraphrase (page numbers from books) One paragraph - evaluation of the source – specifically why it was helpful
