The purpose of an annotation is to describe the cited material.

For how to create an annotation and examples: http://libguides.cedarville.edu/annotations

It should provide enough information about the book or article that a determination can be made as to whether the actual material should be examined.

Annotations can be any length, but usually are about 150 words in length, depending on the item.

Each annotation need not address all of the following concerns, but so far as possible, it should improve the decision making and simplify the researcher’s work.
