Transcript of The annotated bibliography

Making the most of the annotated bibliography
by Andy Gould 2012
Centre for Work Based learning
University of Greenwich Mmm... this looks relevant to my project... 1. First, find a bit of information in a source that might be used in support of a point 2. Then think, 'which one of my project learning outcomes (LO) does it relate to?' Write that down in the LO box on the template 3. Now paraphrase the information from your source - make sure your note is simple and close to the meaning of the original, but in your own words Mmm... what is the real significance of this information to my LO? 4. Stop, and really think why the note you have taken is significant to your LO and overall project aim - then write that down too 5. Don't forget to record your reference details... use the reference checklist to help you record the right information. You'll need this later when you come to write up your report too The annotated bibliography can be much more that just another assignment you hand in as part of your Negotiated Study

This tutorial will give you an overview of how to make the best of the annotated bibliography by:
using it to organise your source material and keep referencing details (needed for Harvard referencing)
using it record the significance of your source material to help you structure paragraphed points and check relevance to you project aim and LOs
using it as a tool to plan your project report's main body, by arranging the paragraph order The tutorial will take you through the stages of filling in and using the annotated bibliography template, available on Moodle in the Negotiated Study section. About this tutorial Together, the note I have taken and the significance of it to my LO, make a reasonable point! This will be the basis of a good paragraph in my project report's main body! 6. You can see that the note and significance are the basis of a paragraph or point. Once you feel that you have enough points (i.e. have filled in enough rows and addressed all of you LOs), you can use the template to plan your main body, by cutting it up into strips, and arranging the points in the order you think they should appear in your project report. Then it's just a matter of typing the main body up (with a little bit of tweaking for flow etc.)! But I think I will finish my cuppa first!!! Don't forget, you still have to hand in a complete annotated bibliography as part of your Negotiated Study. However, you can also see how it can be a useful tool for planning your report too. You can download all of the resources mentioned by logging onto Moodle: Annotated bibliography template
