Annotated Bibliography How-to: What good is it?

A quick guide for the most common assignment in the Communication Department

An Annotated Bibliography is excellent because it: 

  • Forces you to start your research early
  • Helps organize your sources
  • Helps you retrieve sources when you need to refer to them later in your research
  • Helps determine if a source is relevant to your specific topic
  • Helps ensure completion of the assignment on-time
  • Most importantly: exposes you to the process of quality, scholarly research, and the ability to critically evaluate a source and its quality.
