Annotated Bibliography assignment

li {margin-bottom:10px}

Here are some answers to some questions about the annotated bibliography assignment. Remember that what I’m looking for is an annotated bibliography of the 20 best sources for you related to your research topic.

  • Can we include our weekly assignments in the bibliography?
    Yes.
  • Do we have to revise them?
    No, not unless they need it.
  • Does the annotated bibliography need to be mechanically clean and relatively formal?
    Yes, though you can certainly use the first person.
  • Do we have to include all the weekly assignments?
    No, and a couple of them (e.g., Library of Congress Subject Headings) aren’t really appropriate for an annotated bibliography.
  • Can I include just journal articles and books in the bibliography?
    Yes, if those are among the 20 best sources of information for you.
  • Can I include websites, blogs, listservs, book reviews, and whole journals in the annotated bibliography?
    Yes, if those are among the 20 best sources of information for you.
  • How long should the annotations be?
    The annotation (which should summarize and evaluate the source) should be about 1 or 2 ORIGINAL paragraphs.
  • What citation style should the bibliography use?
    Any accepted scholarly citation style (MLA, Chicago, APA, or other). If you’re using something besides MLA, Chicago, or APA, please indicate which style you’re using.
  • When and how is it due?
    Please e-mail it to me at amanda_french@ncsu.edu on Tuesday, December 12 as an attached MS Word, Open Office, or WordPerfect document.
