Annotated Bibliographies

What is an annotated bibliography?

In an annotated bibliography, you will be asked to list your sources in an accepted citation style. You then add an annotation to each citation, providing:

1. A summary of the source. What is the source about? What arguments does it make?

2. An assessment of the source. Is the information reliable? Is the source biased? What is the author's credentials.

3. A reflection on the source. How will you use it in your paper? What part of your thesis does the source support?

 

Purdue University's Online Writing Lab is an excellent source to learn more about how to create an annotated bibliography.

Annotated Bibliography Example

Ives, E.W. “Anne Boleyn and the Early Reformation in England: The Contemporary Evidence." Historical Journal, vol. 37, no. 2, 1994, pp. 389-401, http://zeus.wells.edu:2048/login?url=http://search. ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=hia&AN=9408251996&site=eds-live&scope=site. Accessed 7 June 2017.

This journal article discusses the role Anne Boleyn played in the early stages of the Protestant Reformation in England, and her thoughts on the changes made to the English church. It was published in a peer-reviewed magazine, and the author is a well-known scholar in this field and is Emeritus Professor of English History at the University of Birmingham. My thesis will be arguing that Anne Boleyn was played a major role in the movements of the English Church towards Protestantism, and this source provides important, and contemporary, examples of her work in the transformation process.

Adding Media to Your LibGuide

You can add media to your Page!

Submit any media that you would like added to your page with your text. Be sure to include the necessary citation information!

Images must be submitted in jpeg format and be properly cited. Please adhere to copyright. If the image is protected under copyright, you cannot use it without permission of the copyright holder. For images not protected by copyright, you can look in the Creative Commons and adhere to the necessary permissions posted with the image (ex. permission not required, credit only, etc.). Images not covered by copyright (such as Creative Commons images) must still be cited.

You may link to Youtube videos, with the proper permission. Be sure to provide the video information (title and creator), as well as the embedding information (not the URL). You must also provide a citation.

Formatting Boxes

You may have up to three columns of boxes on your page. Please indicate on your instructions how many columns you would like, and the rough relational dimensions you would like (ex. wider middle column, three even columns, two columns of equal dimesions, etc.).

Please indicate which boxes you would like placed in each column, and in which order you would like them placed. Columns of roughly even length look better than drastically uneven columns.

If you would like your media to be placed inside your text boxes, please indicate which box they belong with. If you would like your media to stand alone, please indicate which column you would like the media to be placed in.
