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.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
