Q. Where can I find examples of annotated bibliographies?
You can find information about preparing annotated bibliographies in the NCU Dissertation Center. Click here to access the Dissertation Center. You can also log into the Commons, and enter the Center for Teaching and Learning from the site directory or from the left navigation of your Personal Commons page by clicking on the open icon next to the Center’s name.
Once on the Dissertation Center homepage, click Resources on the left-hand menu. Under the Writing Resources box, select Annotated Bibliographies and Literature Reviews, as shown below.
You may also review the Annotated Bibliography Samples available from Purdue OWL. This guide on How to Prepare an Annotated Bibliography from Cornell University may also prove helpful. In Spring 2015, the School of Education held a webinar on how to develop an annotated bibliography. You may access the recorded webinar from The Commons post here.
Note, however, that APA does not specify a particular length for each annotation, nor does it specify what the annotation is supposed to accomplish. These criteria are up to your instructor, so contact them with any questions.
For additional assistance in navigating or locating documents within the Dissertation Center, please contact the NCU Service Desk at 888-327-2877 x8888 or firstname.lastname@example.org
For information on how to create an annotated bibliography using RefWorks, please see the Library's FAQ on the topic.
