Q. Where can I find examples of annotated bibliographies?


You can find information about preparing annotated bibliographies in the Academic Success Center in the Outlining and Annotating guide. 

You can also find a resource in the NCU Dissertation Center. Click here to access the Dissertation Center. The Annotated Bibliographies and Literature Review document is located in the NCU Dissertation Center. Click here to access the Dissertation Center's Research page.

Once on the Dissertation Center Research page, scroll down to the sixth box, "Citation," and select Annotated Bibliographies and Literature Review to the far right as shown below.

Annotated Bibliographies

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.

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 servicedesk@ncu.edu


The Library also provides instructions for using ReWorks to complete an annotated bibliography in this FAQ: How do I create an annotated bibliography using the New RefWorks?
