What is an Annotated Bibliography?
An annotated bibliography is a listing of the resources you will use in your paper and includes:
- A brief summary of the content of the resource (book chapter, article, etc.) in your own words
- An explanation of how you will use the resource within your research project
- Categorize the research approach/method used in the resource
The annotated bibliography will be the basis of your literature review. Think of the annotated bib as the skeleton of your literature review.
