As you work to gather information about your research topic, a helpful tool to create/use is an annotated bibliography. An annotated bibliography can help your sort out the articles you collect by writing short summaries/evaluations on the articles. The main purpose of an annotated bibliography is to: summarize, assess, and reflect. It is also used to inform you of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources. Your annotated bibliography can help you to write your literature review section of your research paper.
Annotated bibliography must include reference and an annotation where you have summarized, assess, and reflect on the reference.
