C LIT 315 RESEARCH DOSSIER HANDOUT # 2 Annotated Bibliography and Plot Summaries Use MLA Style Guideline for Bibliographic Style (see UW Library “Citation and Writing Guides”) Annotated Bibliography An annotated bibliography is a list of citations for your sources followed by a brief descriptive and evaluative paragraph: the annotation. Annotations usually run 100-200 words. The purpose of the annotation provides a succinct summary of the main idea of the source. It also offers evaluative information regarding the meaning, relevance, and quality of the source. Evaluating Your evaluation of the source begins by asking yourself “who” is the author (if one is named), “when” was it published (date) and “where” (publication source)? Audience Ask yourself what type of audience the publication addresses: A general reader in a popular magazine? Film exhibitors or distributors? The cast and crew for a particular film? Contemporary scholars? Cinephiles? Style Is the publication organized logically? Is the tone humorous or critical? Are the main points clearly presented? Do you find it easy to read, or is it stilted and choppy? Is the information covered fact, opinion, or propaganda? Does the information appear to be valid and thoughtful, or is it questionable and unsupported? Example Geoghegan, Kev. “Indian Films Make Mark in Cannes.” BBC NEWS. 23 May 2012.
