Write My Annotated Bibliography

QUESTION: Write My Annotated Bibliography

Before I answer your question let me first explain the meaning of an annotated bibliography. While a bibliography is a list of the all the reference I use when I write my essay, an annotated bibliography includes a summary, analysis or evaluation of such references.

The format I use to write my essay for me annotated bibliography varies depending on the requirement of the class. Regardless of format an annotated bibliography should include any of these:

• A Summary. Summarize the source you are using. Write a short paragraph on the main arguments presented and the topics covered. In short it is what you will say when you are asked what the source is all about. The length of the annotation will depend on how detailed you want to be.
• An Assessment. After you have written a brief description or summarized your source, make an evaluation of how helpful the source was to your essay. Is the information consistent and dependable?
• A Reflection. After you have summarized and assessed a particular source, you need to ask how the information fits into your essay. Was the information provided by the source helpful? How can the source be used in your essay?

When I do my essay, I write my annotations in paragraph form including only a couple of sentences. This is when I only have to make a summary of the sources. If a broad analysis of the source is needed, the annotated bibliography can run up to a couple of pages.

Before you write your annotated bibliography make sure it is clear how it is supposed to be written. Be clear on whether only a summary, an assessment or a reflection is needed. Some of your assignments may even require that you make an annotated bibliography on why you chose a particular source for your essay.
