An annotated bibliography is a bibliography in which each citation is accompanied by a short description and evaluation of the source. An annotation is different from an abstract. An abstract is merely a summary of a source; an annotation is a critical evaluation that comments on the authority, reliability, point of view and usefulness of the source. Your annotated bibliography will contain the following: 1. Introduction/Outline (2-3 paragraphs) Your introduction explains the scope of your topic and the results of your research. Your introduction will answer the following questions: • What is your topic? What issue or conflict are you researching? Why is the issue important? • What resources were most helpful in finding information on your topic and why? What particular research strategies worked? What didn’t? • In what ways has your research shaped, enhanced, or changed your thinking on your topic? • Provide a short topical outline of your argument—use bullet points, but be sure that each point expresses a clear point that supports your overall thesis statement. 2. Citations in proper MLA style For each of your 5-6 sources, write a citation in proper MLA style. Sources must be listed alphabetically by author. Most databases supply MLA citations for the articles you find but are sure to double-check them for accuracy. Citation guides are available on the Library Web site: https://belmont.libguides.com/citation. 3. Annotations for each of your 5-7 sources Each annotation must contain the following three elements: a. Summarize: 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. b. Assess: After summarizing a source, evaluate it. What type of source is it? 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? c. 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? Label it with at least one BEAM category and explain how you will use it. *Review the BEAM Method of source evaluation: https://www.flickr.com/photos/stephenfrancoeur/5218109718/
