Stage 2: Creating your annotated bibliography DUE DATE: TUESDAY MAY 5
What is an annotated bibliography???
An annotated bibliography includes three things:
-your documented source in Chicago style
-a summary of the information found in that source. Part of the summary will be an assessment of its value to your overall paper. It may include good graphs or tables, so you will say this.
**these notes are to help you save time in your research so make notes that will help you be most efficient
***PURPOSE of annotated bibliography is to act as a reminder of what is in that source when/if you consult it again.
****You must annotate a minimum of 5 sources
Here is an example:
Topic: Tans-mountain pipeline
Mahor, Stephen, “Memo to Alberta: Get a grip,” April 22, 2018, 5.
-favours hearing BC concerns
-opinion piece – very biased, maybe use for ideas for against building but need more info or not useful
-long term favours Alberta but hard to see economic gains for BC in long term
-BC gets increased tanker traffic and high chance of bituman spill that BC will then need to clean up
-(blames) US environmental lobby against Keystone XL
-Trudeau will back pipeline with federal money esp since failure of other pipelines to move Alberta oil
-talks of history of Fed gov funding energy and oil projects
-reference to Chris Turner “The Patch”
