Web sources are difficult to cite, and it is possible that two people might cite the same source two different ways.
An annotated bibliography is a list of citations to books, articles, and documents.
When assembling a final bibliography, list your sources (texts, articles, interviews, and so on) in alphabetical order by authors' last names.
Sources that don't have authors (encyclopedias, movies) should be alphabetized by title.
Haven't started your paper yet and need an outline?
These sample essay outlines include a research paper outline from an actual student paper.
Cite the book, article, or document using the appropriate style.
Write a concise annotation that summarizes the central theme and scope of the book or article.
Start a preliminary, or draft, bibliography by listing on a separate sheet of paper all your sources.
Note down the full title, author, place of publication, publisher, and date of publication for each source.
