What is an Annotated Bibliography

Sample Annotated Bibliographies

Refer to these annotated bibliographies as you create your own.
Note the similarities: what are common features across all annotated bibliographies?
Note the differences: what is unique to a discipline, an author, or the reason why the bibliography was written?


Citation style: APA, except embedded links to the articles which are for your convenience, but do not adhere to APA style. Citations should also have hanging indents. See Purdue's OWL for proper APA formatting.
