What is an annotated bibliography?
An annotated bibliography is a list of citations to books, articles and documents followed by a descriptive and evaluative paragraph, the annotation. The annotation is to inform the reader about the quality, relevance and accuracy of the cited source.
Why do I need to create an annotated bibliography?
Not only does a bibliography provide a list of citations to the sources (books, articles, documents, etc.) used, the annotations provide descriptive and critical analysis of each cited resource.
What is a citation manager?
A citation manager allows you to import, store, organize, and share your research citations and automatically format your bibliographies into whatever style you use (APA, MLA, Chicago, and many more). They allow you to save citations, organize them into folders or libraries, and generate bibliographies and citations as you write. Scholars may cite the same articles in many different publications. Having them organized, in the appropriate style is a major time saver.
