An annotated bibliography entry consists of two components: the Citation and the Annotation.
The citation should be formatted in the bibliographic style that your professor has requested for the assignment.
An annotated bibliography is an organized list of sources (like a reference list).
It differs from a straightforward bibliography in that each reference is followed by a paragraph length annotation, usually 100–200 words in length.
This paper critiques the use of Ecological Niche Models (ENM) and species distribution by performing a tongue-in-cheek examination of the distribution of the fictional Sasquatch, based on reports from an online Bigfoot archive.
Lozier's paper powerfully demonstrates the issues faced by ENM, when reports come from non-specialists, and highlights key problems with sourcing data from unmediated online environments.
In other words, if the reader were exploring the same topic as you, is this material useful and if so, why?
While an abstract also summarizes an article, book, Web site or other type of publication, it is purely descriptive.
This study is distinct because its researchers surveyed library nonusers as well as users.
The major finding was that 75.2% of people who used the Internet also used the public library.
