1 Annotated Bibliographies
A Quick Overview

2 Bibliography A bibliography
A list of research sources (books, journals, websites, periodicals, etc.) Sometimes called "references" or "works cited" depending on the style format you are using. Includes the bibliographic information (i.e., the author, title, publisher, etc.). An annotation is a summary and/or evaluation.

3 Annotation An annotated bibliography includes a summary and/or evaluation of each of the sources. Annotations may do one or more of the following: Summarize: What are the main arguments? What is the point of this book or article? What topics are covered? If someone asked what this article/book is about, what would you say?

4 Descriptive vs. Evaluative
Descriptive- bare bones summary Evaluative- substantive and summarizes all main points and includes comments Descriptive will suffice for this assignment But please have at least four to five sentences

5 Example (Book) Ehrenreich, B. (2001). Nickel and dimed: On (not) getting by in America. New York: Henry Holt and Company. In this book of nonfiction based on the journalist's experiential research, Ehrenreich attempts to ascertain whether it is currently possible for an individual to live on a minimum-wage in America. Taking jobs as a waitress, a maid in a cleaning service, and a Wal-Mart sales employee, the author summarizes and reflects on her work, her relationships with fellow workers, and her financial struggles in each situation. An experienced journalist, Ehrenreich is aware of the limitations of her experiment and the ethical implications of her experiential research tactics and reflects on these issues in the text. The author is forthcoming about her methods and supplements her experiences with scholarly research on her places of employment, the economy, and the rising cost of living in America. Ehrenreich’s project is timely, descriptive, and well-researched.
