This guide will provide information on APA formatting and information on specific databases that will help with research.

What is an Annotated Bibliography?

                                          The Annotated Bibliography: What is it?



What an annotated bibliography is and how it looks:



An annotated bibliography lists sources in a specific format...for your class, it is A.P.A. It is the same style as a reference page.

Each citation is followed by a few paragraphs that describes and evaluates the source. 

What is the purpose? To provide a listing to other readers of sources for a particular topic, and analyzing for overall relevance and reliability.
