Your PASSport includes an Annotated Bibliography due Week 8. It will include a record of 10 reference list citations on a topic of your choosing. Below each entry, you will provide an annotation – or brief summary – of the main ideas from the text. This week, begin work on your bibliography by conducting research in the APU Library databases.
Submit a draft Annotated Bibliography of at least four sources. These will give you some practice and allow you to get feedback from your instructor before having to do the full assignment in Week 7.
You must include a Title Page.
Review this Annotated Bibliographies (opens in a new window) handout.
Cite at least four references from the APU Library databases in APA style.

Follow APA style formatting for a References page:
Use Times New Roman 12 point font and double spacing.

List the entries in alphabetical order.
Use a hanging indent for the reference listings (i.e. indent the second and subsequent lines of each entry.)
Skip an additional line after each annotation, before the next entry.
