2 Hudson Valley Community College What is a bibliography?Most research papers end with a bibliography--a list of sources you used in writing your paper.Collect the information you’ll need for this Works Cited (MLS) or References (APA) page as you find your sources. This class will show you how to gather this information from our catalog and databases.Citation makers like Easybib can help too—but they’re only as good as the information you give them. They often leave out dates and publishers.Do you have a copy of the Bedford Handbook? It’s a requirement for many English classes at HVCC. It is not required for this class but it can be useful.
3 What is an Annotated Bibliography? An annotated bibliography provides a list of sources that includes the information needed for finding the source (the citation) and an actual paragraph or two that describes what is in the source, who the authors were, and where they got their information (the annotation.) For each source, the citation tells the reader the title, author, date, publisher, etc and the annotation informs the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the source. Each annotation ( words or 3-7 sentences) is a descriptive and evaluative paragraph under the citation. The annotated bibliography is kept in order alphabetically by author.
4 APA or MLA Citation Styles: APA stand for the American Psychological Association and is used for research papers in education and the social sciences. MLA stands for Modern Language Association and is used for research papers for literature and language classes.
