Critical Annotated Bibliography

There are several sources on how to write a Critical Annotated Bibliography.

A good general one is the Purdue Online Writing Lab. However, the example there is for a more general annotation. A better summary of a Critical Annotated Bibliography is here. In your assignment, you should also write about/discuss:

1. A brief bio of the author, which institution they are associated with.

2. How was the book or scholarly article received? Look for reviews and summarize them. This is important to give context to the material.How many times has the article been cited? Where? 

3. Explain in a paragraph or two how this particular resource addresses your research, answers your research question and/or informs you on the topic.
