Overview of Annotated BibliographiesAnnotated bibliographies are collections on reference/sources that focus on one theme. Usually, they are constructed as part of the research and used to inform and remind the writer of what the various sources contain. They also evaluate the sources for their usefulness to a project you’re gathering resources for. There are many benefits to knowing how and why to create an annotated bibliography including;1. Learning how to read and evaluate a source critically2. Developing the ability to summarize and evaluate sources in a brief3. Learning how to create correct citations4. Developing an understanding of how to collect sources and to provide useful notes for later reference Annotated bibliographies can take various forms, but all have the purpose of gathering sources, building full bibliographic citations, and summarizing the source. Each source that is listed and summarized in the bibliography is called an entry. Do not confuse “bibliography” with “works cited”. In MLA the works cited go at the end of your research writing and only include the sources you’ve cited in your work. A bibliography contains sources both used and consulted for a project (not necessarily only those cited in the work). An interesting point to note is that annotated bibliographies can also contain entries for sources you will NOT use in a final piece–as in, you’ve evaluated the source and have determined it is not a good one to use for the project you’re working on. By giving yourself notes to consult later you can prevent yourself from accidentally reviewing the same source twice and/or you can alert others who do similar research (in your view) the source has some flaws. EXAMPLE of a SAMPLE Annotated Bibliography Your assignment 1. Develop and identify an appropriate research question related to the behavior of e-cigarette manufacturers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your research question should be highlighted at the top of the annotated bibliography. Your instructor should not have to search for your research question, it should be CLEARLY identified. Narrowing a topic – Identifying Research Question (Links to an external site.)2. Identify three references that might be appropriate for your research question. One reference needs to be an academic article from the library database (use “Find it” to locate your library resource). The other two references can be websites or other non-library sources. Find it – HCC Database Link (Links to an external site.)3. Make sure your references (above) are in APA or MLA format. MLA format tutorial (Links to an external site.) or APA format tutorial (Links to an external site.)4. For each reference, provide a two-paragraph summary. Summaries are what the source/reference is about or what the author covers in the writing. It does NOT include a lot of details. However, summaries should include;-Does the source pass the CRAPP test? Summarize-Thesis and conclusion the author draws (one paragraph)-How relevant is this source for your research question? Be sure to clearly explain why this is a relevant source or not. Would you use this source for information related to your research question?
