The Process to Follow While Writing your Annotated Bibliography




Summarize: Some annotations merely summarize the source. 


– 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? 


The length of your annotations will determine how detailed your summary is. (PARAPHRASING)




Assess: After summarizing a source, it may be helpful to evaluate it.


– Is it a useful source? 


How does it compare with other sources in your bibliography? 


– Is the information reliable? Is this source biased or objective? 


– What is the goal of this source? (EVALUATING RESOURCES)




Reflect: Once you’ve summarized and assessed a source, you need to ask how it fits into your research. 


– Was this source helpful to you? 


– How does it help you shape your argument? 


– How can you use this source in your research project? 


– Has it changed how you think about your topic?




Your annotated bibliography may include some of these, all of these, or even others. If you’re doing this for a class, you should get specific guidelines from your instructor (Purdue).
