  13. Annotated Bibliography <ul><li>A bibliography is a list of sources (books, journals, websites, periodicals, etc.) one has used for researching a topic. Bibliographies are sometimes called &quot;references&quot; or &quot;works cited&quot; depending on the style format you are using. </li></ul><ul><li>An annotation is a summary and/or evaluation. </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore, an annotated bibliography includes a summary and/or evaluation of each of the sources. Depending on your project or the assignment, your annotations may do one or more of the following: </li></ul>
  14. Your annotated Bibliographies should include: <ul><li>Summary : 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. </li></ul><ul><li>Reflection : Once you've summarized 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? </li></ul>
