Annotated Bibliography. The goal for this portion of your project is to provide information on the sources and documents being used in your research. An annotated bibliography implies that you will need to do more than identify sources – you will need to review those sources and provide an explanation of why, and how, the sources are relevant to your project.
You will need to include a minimum of eight (8) viable sources of information. At least six of the eight entries must be from peer-reviewed sources that are related to scholarly research on your topic or organization. Since the goal is to review existing scholarly research on your topic, do not simply include textbooks or readings from your PADM classes; although you may incorporate ideas from those sources in your final Capstone Paper, you also will need to include existing scholarly research sources, and those sources are what need to be reflected in the Annotated Bibliography.

Do not include your interview as an entry in the Annotated Bibliography (as noted at the OWL website, although cited in-text, interviews are not included on the References page or in an Annotated Bibliography).
Since your final paper OR narrated PowerPoint presentation (due in Learning Module 6), needs to incorporate your research, the annotated bibliography is an important step in preparing the final assignment, which makes up the bulk of the points for the Capstone Project. As such, be sure to put in time and effort in researching peer-reviewed sources.
