1. ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY
An annotated bibliography is a list of citations to books, articles, and documents. Each citation is followed by a brief (about 150 words) descriptive and evaluative paragraph, the annotation. The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited. My purpose, for you, is to ensure accountability progress toward your final project.
Creating an annotated bibliography calls for the application of a variety of intellectual skills: concise exposition, succinct analysis, and informed library research.
• First, locate and record citations to books, periodicals, and documents that may contain useful information and ideas on your topic. Briefly examine and review the actual items. Then choose those works that provide a variety of perspectives on your topic.
• Cite the book, article, or document using the appropriate style (Turabian/Chicago, common for MFA papers)- see below
• Write a concise annotation that summarizes the central theme and scope of the book or article. Include one or more sentences that (a) evaluate the authority or background of the author, (b) comment on the intended audience, (c) compare or contrast this work with another you have cited, or (d) explain how this work illuminates your bibliography topic.
You should have at least 2 books (artist monographs with essays, critical texts, etc) and 2 articles or essays from art journals. Chances are you will want or need more than this. Utilize the Library’s online search engines for journal articles, and LINK+ for books.
Bibliographical citations are formatted in standard Chicago/Turabian style, with the second and any subsequent lines of the citation indented. Annotations begin on the line following the citation and are aligned with the hanging indent. Single space within entries, but double space between entries. See attached example.
