An annotated bibliography is simply a bibliographic reference in whichever citation style you are using (e.g., APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.) followed by a brief summary or assessment of the reference.

The library has a guide for TED606 with a section on the annotated bibliography assignment. There are several sample searches related to your textbook chapters that you can use to locate your two research-based articles.

When you find an article of interest on the search results page, look for an icon labeled, HTML full text or PDF full text just beneath the article information. The screenshots below are taken from our EBSCOhost databases, but other library databases will have a similar display.

For HTML articles, you should see the “save” option in the toolbar on the right side of the HTML screen. For PDF articles, there will be an additional “save” option in the toolbar at the top of the PDF screen.

Please see the Annotated Bibliography Samples page from the Purdue Online Writing Lab for more information.
