The Process to Follow While Writing your Annotated Bibliography

Summarize: Some annotations merely 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. (PARAPHRASING)

Assess: After summarizing a source, it may be helpful to evaluate it.

– Is it a useful source?

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? (EVALUATING RESOURCES)

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?

Your annotated bibliography may include some of these, all of these, or even others. If you’re doing this for a class, you should get specific guidelines from your instructor (Purdue).
