In this section, you will find many instructional materials we've developed for our Writing Center teaching.
However, there are limitations to these materials. Assignments vary, and different instructors want different things from student writers. Therefore, the advice here may or may not apply to your writing situation.
Finally, handouts can give only a fraction of the customized guidance that an individual conference with a Writing Center instructor can provide. If you have questions about the information in our handouts, please make an appointment to see a Writing Center instructor.
Use the links below to learn how to write an annotated bibliography.
An annotated bibliography is an organized list of sources, each of which is followed by a brief note or "annotation."
These annotations do one or more of the following:
describe the content and focus of the book or article
suggest the source's usefulness to your research
evaluate its method, conclusions, or reliability
record your reactions to the source.
