ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHIES

How do I write an annotated bibliography?Bingham, George Caleb. Puzzled Witness. ARTSTOR

1.  Select your sources, using evaluation criteria

2. Since you are writing about music, use a variety of sources, including a musical example (or two).

3.  For each source:

  • Record the bibliographic information accurately, using the appropriate citation style
  • Summarize the source
  • Critically assess the source, including the following:
    • Author's credentials and credibility
    • Main argument of the work
    • How useful it was to your research topic
    • Intended audience for the work
    • Strengths and weaknesses of the work.
    • Importance of the work in relationship to other works in the field
    • Conclusions proposed by the author

CITE SOURCES : CHICAGO STYLE GUIDE

AVOID PLAGIARISM. Document sources when you quote or borrow ideas, words, images, by creating footnotes and a bibliography. This demonstrates your research path and allows readers to follow up on ideas expressed.
