An annotated bibliography is a list of citations to scholarly sources including books, articles, and documents. Each citation is followed by a brief descriptive and evaluative paragraph — known as the annotation — with the purpose of informing the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the source. In your annotated bibliography, the annotation for each source should immediately follow the listing of the sources.
This assignment has two parts:
- The list of sources.
- The annotation for each source. In your annotated bibliography, the annotation for each source should immediately follow the listing of the sources.
The list of sources must contain the following:
The subject of your research (e.g. Workplace Safety Hazards, Accidents and Illnesses), which you must state at the top of the page.
- Ten sources of information about your subject, including:
- At least one book
- At least four articles from the Hunt Library databases
- At least two scholarly articles
The annotation for each source has two parts:
- A short summary (3-5 sentences) of the information found in the source.
- An evaluation of the source’s credibility, reliability, currency, possible bias, and usefulness with respect to your topic.
Review the “Descriptive/Informative” and “APA Example” tabs in the Hunt Library’s Annotated Bibliography Guide (Links to an external site.).
Save your assignment using a naming convention that includes your first and last name and the activity number (or description). Do not add punctuation or special characters.
