Welcome! What's this guide about?

Welcome to your Topic Guide for "Writing an Annotated Bibliography", for PE018: Putting Faith to Work. It covers: 

  • What is an Annotated Bibliography?
  • How do I write my Annotated Bibliography?

Why should you use this Course Guide?

  • It will help you prepare one of your major assessments for PE018

How will it help you?

Two important notes.
  • Please look at the Box "Length of an annotated Bibliography", found on the page "Writing an annotated bibliography". This explains how one annotation may vary in length from one to the other, whilst maintaining consistency in purpose.
