AT 492 Senior Seminar - Hammerschmidt: Home


This workshop and Library Guide is designed to help you do two things:

1. Refine and add to your annotated bibliography based on the literature review. Make sure you have done a thorough literature scan and have selected the best sources.

2. Use this information to create a poster or oral presentation at the MSUM Student Academic Conference.

Annotated Bibliography

What is an annotated bibliography?

  • An annotated bibliography provides an account of the research that has been done on a given topic.
  • Like any bibliography, an annotated bibliography is an alphabetical list of research sources.
  • In addition to bibliographic data, an annotated bibliography provides a concise summary of each source and some assessment of its value or relevance.
  • Depending on the assignment, an annotated bibliography may be one stage in a larger research project, or it may be an independent project standing on its own.

​Why is it important?

  • The purpose of an annotated bibliography is to reflect on the information you have read in your research and begin to synthesize the ideas you have gathered.
  • An annotated bibliography can often point others toward more sources on the topic that may be interesting or insightful for them.
