Annotated Bibliographies

Created by Chris Lopez, Kian Ravaei

As annotated bibliographies (AB) become more commonly assigned, it is important to not only know what they are, but why they are important. Annotated Bibliographies is an interactive webcomic that walks students through the reasons why their instructor would assign an AB and explains several types of ABs that a student might be asked to create.
