Annotated Bibliography

You will need to create an annotated bibliography in MLA format.

An annotated bibliography is a list of resources you’ve gathered that includes not only the formal MLA citation for each source, but also YOUR explanation about each source: what it is, what it says/means, who it's for, what its strengths and weaknesses are, and why you’re using it. 

Each entry must include a full MLA citation, just like what would normally appear on a Works Cited page. The sources will be listed in alphabetical order, by the authors’ last names (if available). The only difference is that after the end of each citation, you’ll include a short entry that summarizes, analyzes, and reflects on the source, connecting it back to your research question Altogether, each annotation should be between 100-200 words long. You will want to discuss the following in each entry:

  • The purpose of the work
  • A summary of its content
  • For what type of audience the work is written
  • Its relevance to your topic
  • Any special or unique features about the material
  • The strengths, weaknesses or biases in the material
