Annotated Bibliography

Summary

The annotated bibliography will serve as your final assignment for this course. Like other final papers, you are expected to choose a topic (theme, event, institution, etc.) from the time period History 17B covers (1865 to the present). Then you are expected to locate five sources that are likely to enhance your understanding of that topic. For example, locating a book on Eugene Debs should enhance your understanding of the Progressive Era. 

At least two of you sources must be books, while the rest may be articles and periodicals. At least one of the articles must be from an academic journal, while periodicals must be from a reputable news outlet (No Wikipedia, History.net, etc.!!!)

Unlike a final paper, an annotated bibliography, while the final writing assignment for this class, is also a research tool. Whether at a library, online, or both, you find sources for a topic (books, articles, etc.), then use the annotated bibliography as a means for analyzing each source: What is the book/article about (summary)? Is it a reliable source (assess)? How does it help you to understand the topic you have chosen (reflect)?

Make sure you follow the more specific guidelines regarding MLA citation and the content of your annotated bibliography listed on the syllabus.

For you topic, you can very specific or very broad. So long as the topic fits into the chronology of the course (1865 to the present).

For example: Race/Racism (broad topic), the Civil Rights Movement (more specific), the Black Panther Party, the Montgomery Bus Boycott, the Ku Klux Klan (all very specific). If your topic is a biography, that would also be a very specific (Ronald Reagan, Emma Goldman, Jackie Robinson, etc.).

I encourage you to use library and online search engines to locate sources. As stated above, please keep it to books (at least two), academic articles, and periodicals (No Wikipedia, etc.!!!).

Here is an example of a completed annotated bibliography on three sources. The format of this example is how your annotated bibliography should look: Annotated Bibliography Example (please disregard that this example is a 17A topic and just focus on the format).

Annotated Bibliography (SLOs 1 ­ 2, 5 ­ 6) As a final research assignment for the course, you are required to write an Annotated Bibliography. A bibliography is a list of sources (books, journals, websites, periodicals, etc.) one has used for researching a topic. Bibliographies are sometimes called "References" or "Works Cited" depending on the style format you are using. A bibliography usually just includes the bibliographic information (i.e., the author, title, publisher, etc.). An annotation is a summary and/or evaluation. Therefore, an annotated bibliography includes a summary and/or evaluation of each of the sources. Your Annotated Bibliography must include five (5) sources. At least two (2) sources must be books, and at least one (1) of the remaining three (3) sources must be from an academic journal. Once you have chosen a topic and located five (5) sources on that topic, summarize and evaluate those sources in the following ways: 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. 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? 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 must be typed, double­spaced, and use MLA citation . Use bold font for your citations. You must also read the full description of this assignment by clicking on “Annotated Bibliography”, which is listed in the week it is due on the course website. There you will find further instructions for proper format, including an example of how your 5­source Annotated Bibliography should look. It also provides information on choosing a topic, research assistance from the campus library, and citation assistance from Purdue University
