Each citation must include an evaluative annotation.
for the annotations, evaluate the sources using at least two or more of the five evaluation criteria above. You should think of it as looking for proof for what you claim in your annotations. Below is the evaluative annotations descritions:
Authority. Here you will describe the credentials of the author or producer. In the case of individual authors this is usually a fairly straightforward process of finding out the person’s training and experience with the topic. For books, you can usually find this information somewhere within the book. For Encyclopedias and other reference books, look for a list of contributors, often at the end of the book. You might mention the author’s degrees and other writings on the topic. For articles, there is sometimes a byline within the article that tells readers something about the author. If there is no byline, and you are in a database, you can also click on the author’s name to see what else they have written. You can also search for the author’s name in Google. You may need to use the article title as well. If the article is a Journal, it will usually say which university the author is from, and you can include that information in your search.
If the author is not named or is an organization or a publisher, your work is more complicated. In the case of a periodical, you will need to try to evaluate the authority of the periodical. There are several ways you can do this. You can go to the website of the periodical and see how it describes itself. Look for specifics, such as awards or organizations that the journal is a member of. You can also search for the periodical in Amazon.com and look for a description of the periodical. Finally, if you are evaluating a Web site produced by an organization, look at their home page and look for any links that say things like “About Us” or “Mission Statement.” Specifics, such as awards they have won, are useful.
Currency. Here you look at the date the source was produced. For books and articles this is usually fairly straightforward. For Web sites this can be trickier. Some pages have a date last updated near the bottom. Some pages have a copyright date, which can apply to the site as a whole and not just the page you’re on. Once you have determined the date, figure out if it is current enough for your topic, and explain why to the reader.
Objectivity. Try to determine if your source has a detectable bias. Is the source trying to persuade? If authored by an organization, see if there is a mission statement. Do the authors or producers have a clear agenda related to the content? Are there ads related to the content? Do the authors suggest any actions? Use these questions to help you write about the source’s objectivity.
Purpose. What do you think the author or producer was trying to achieve in writing the source? You can sometimes get help understanding a book’s purpose from book reviews, either from a Library database or from amazon.com. Consider your source and describe its purpose.
Relevance. Here you are attempting to describe how the source helps answer your topic question(s). The sources you select should all be relevant; describe how they are relevant for this evaluation criterion.
