What is an Annotated Bibliography? How Do I Do It? Why Should I Care?

You’ve been asked to create an “annotated bibliography.” Maybe s(he) wants to see it as a first step to a larger project; maybe it’s the main project for the course. Either way, do you really have to read all those books and describe or evaluate them—especially in a short time frame? What does a good annotation look like?
At a minimum, annotated bibliographies summarize a source and explain its relevance to the writer’s chosen topic; on a deeper level, they function similar to a literature review, evaluating/critiquing a resource and explaining its relationship to other scholarship on the topic. This workshop will cover different types of annotated bibliographies, and is designed primarily for undergraduates who have received one of these types of assignments, or for graduate students who have had little practical experience with the concept. We will look at examples of annotations, as well as strategies for reading and evaluating materials in a time-sensitive environment.
