Creating a Bibliography
A bibliography is a list of books. Bibliographies are commonly used to list books used for research when writing a paper, and they can be used to provide suggestions for readers looking for books on a certain topic.
Use the online library catalog to search for various books relating to a selected topic of your choice. You can use the keyword or subject search functions. Open a Word document and create a list of the books you select to add to the bibliography. The title should be the topic the books all have in common. Be sure to include both fiction and nonfiction titles.
For this assignment, the bibliography should provide the title, author, illustrator (if there is one), and call number for each book, as well as the year it was published and the total number of pages.
Annotated bibliographies give a short description of each book. To annotate, you must become familiar with the book chosen and create a brief summary. Include what the reader might like about or learn from the book and how it relates to the topic of the bibliography.
For examples, see these Holocaust Bibliographies (sorted by Genre):
