Annotated Bibliography

One purpose of the Annotated Bibliography (also known as 15 Sources Annotated)is to apply a bit of pressure to collect and present your best resources before the inevitable end-of-semester crunch. The other is to encourage you to look over what you’ve gathered to discover what you’re missing.

Remember, you’re not obligated to keep these sources if your research takes a turn. Present them to me here in good faith, please, but if you don’t need them in the end (and if you replace them with sources more interesting, more valuable, or more credible), I won’t mind at all that you’ve dumped them.


Identify and link to your strongest 15 sources. Especially if you’re light on academic sources, beef up your credibility by Academic Search Premier (or any of the library’s database) to find your new material. Eventually, whatever you do now, you’ll need a majority of academic sources.

Post your sources in the A15: Annotated BibliographyCategory.

    Assuming it’s a typo, but April 10th before class?

      Not a typo, actually, Tony. This is the official name for what most students called Sources 11-15. My intention (not perhaps beautifully and fully expressed) was that instead of 5 more sources, we’d get all 15 “best sources” with links and annotations in one convenient spot.

      The Course Outline calls it Annotated Bibliography. The fact that nobody else did is my fault. I’m trying to correct that now.

      Thanks for paying attention! 🙂
