Assignment – Preliminary Annotated Bibliography
For this assignment, you are required to submit a preliminary annotated bibliography of works that you anticipate might be included in your final Historiographical Essay. At this point, a minimum of 15, properly formatted ANNOTATED items are required. To illustrate the proper format, a sample annotated bibliography is attached below.
For details, see the syllabus and the “Historiographical Essay” documents that are attached to the Historiographical Essay assignment instructions. Do remember to apply the required Chicago style protocols. The most current version of the Chicago Formatting Style Guides are available in the online library: http://apus.libguides.com/APUS_ePress/chicago. Note that significant points will be deducted for failure to annotate your entries.
Sample Annotated Bibliography
Annotation means a comment about the bibliographic entry. It is not a review or complete summary of what you read. The annotation should not be longer than three to five sentences, but indeed be longer than a single sentence or phrase.
Title of Essay/Analysis/Paper
Bissett, Susan and Lisa Bruckman. “Union County College Libraries Citation Guide: Documenting Sources Using Turabian.” September 2000.
This is a pamphlet prepared by two UCC librarians and available at the UCC Library. This pamphlet was specifically produced for my courses and thus may qualify as an original source. It really belongs in the category of “pamphlet.”
The Chicago Manual of Style: The Essential Guide for Writers, Editors, and Publishers, 15th Ed. Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2003.
This is a 956 page tome that tells you more than the ordinary person would ever want to know about formatting a book for publication. The chapters on documentation explain how do do bibliographies. It seems to me that Web citations are still not fully integrated even in this 2003 edition. One would expect that Turabian will soon follow with an updated version of her briefer book.

This web site provides additional examples of how to do bibliography in the Turabian format. There are many formats for citing web sites, unfortunately.
Turabian, Kate L. A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, 6th Ed. Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1996.
Turabians Manual, 6th ed., is based on the fourteenth edition of the Chicago Manual of Style (1993). Turabian is an abbreviated condensation of the more comprehensive University of Chicago Manual. Turabian is available at most town libraries, and can be bought at most bookstores.
Again, this is simply a sample annotated bibliography formatting guide. For specific entry formatting see the Chicago Style Guide
