What is a Bibliography?

According to the Merriam Webster Dictionary:


Definition ofBIBLIOGRAPHY1:the history, identification, or description of writings or publications2a: a list often with descriptive or critical notes of writings relating to a particular subject, period, or authorb:a list of works written by an author or printed by a publishing house3:the works or a list of the works referred to in a text or consulted by the author in its production— Examples ofBIBLIOGRAPHY

  1. The instructor provided the students with an excellentbibliographyon local history.
  2. The book includes a lengthybibliography.

An Annotated Bibliography is most closely associated with definition 2a above, a list of works with descriptive or critical notes.

“Information Literacy” is a term that describes the process of finding, evaluating, and effectively using information. In our case it would be for historical research but it can be used in any academic (or personal) situation. To help you learn how to access, evaluate, and use information well, do the following assignments.

For each annotated bibliography assignment I willgiveyou therequired documents.You will not write a research paper over thetopic, butyou will produce an annotated bibliography of your sources. [See the note following the assignment about what that is if you don’t know already.]

Use the Chicago-style sheet as your guide.

First,summarize the source, including the source’s thesis, key points, and the most significant detail or evidence supporting those points. If someone asked what this document was about, what would you say? What is the purpose of the document? What topics are covered? What are the main arguments?

Second, evaluate the source. Think about why did the author create the document and why was it written for and why?

Do not merely copy the author’s words—that’s plagiarism and it defeats the entire point of an annotated bibliography. Rewrite each source’s information entirely in your own words so that you will remember it and so that others can know if it is a source they should consult.

“An annotated bibliography is a list of citations to books, articles, and documents. Each citation is followed by a brief (usually about 150 words) descriptive and evaluative paragraph, (who wrote, what the document is about, when and what time period written, where was it written, and why is the document significant in history/historical context-place in history, time and place give the background) the annotation. The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited.”
