- How to Create an Annotated Bibliography
One of the most important aspects of conducting any research is compiling a bibliography of sources. As you're going through the research process you may be asked - or you may find it useful - to create an annotated bibliography. Just like a regular bibliography this will contain publication information for the sources that you are citing in your work, but the annotated bibliography will also include a brief summary of the source and your own critical assessment of it's relevance, objectivity, and usefulness. This allows you to keep an organized record of your own critical thinking throughout the research process.
