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).
