Writing: WRT 110 & 105/110 Introduction to College Writing

Your one-stop for books, articles, websites, and other resources you'll need for Writing 110 & 110/105.

Annotated Bibliographies

A bibliography is a list of works (books, articles, films, etc.) on a particular topic. An annotated bibliography includes an entry following each citation that summarizes the work. An annotation can help the reader determine the value of each work on the topic and the contribution it might make to their own research.

This WRT110 guide is intended for use by many sections. If your section requires the creation of an annotated bibliography, you will want to be sure to follow your professor's guidelines. However, if you have not been given specific guidelines, you can refer to the general resources provided in the box 'From Purdue Owl'.

From Purdue Owl

The Purdue Online Writing Lab and Excelsior Online Writing Lab both offer helpful examples of how to format and write an annotated bibliography. Keep in mind that annotated bibliographies may be written in any citation style, so be sure to use the style that your professor recommends.
