What is an Annotated Bibliography?
“Anannotated bibliographyis a list of citations to books, articles, and documents. Each citation is followed by a briefdescriptiveand evaluative paragraph, theannotation. The purpose of theannotationis to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sourcescited” (guides.library.cornell.edu).
Abstractsare the purely descriptive summaries often found at the beginning of scholarly journal articles or in periodical indexes.Annotationsare descriptive and critical; they may describe the author's point of view, authority, or clarity and appropriateness of expression.
Creating an annotated bibliography calls for the application of a variety of intellectual skills: concise exposition, succinct analysis, and informed library research.First, locate and record citations to books, periodicals, and documents that may contain useful information and ideas on your topic. Briefly examine and review the actual items. Then choose those works that provide a variety of perspectives on your topic.Cite the book, article, or document using the appropriate style. In this case, we will use MLA format.
For 2018 Exhibitions:

Theauthors, researchers at the Rand Corporation and Brown University, use data from the National Longitudinal Surveys of Young Women and Young Men to test their hypothesis that nonfamily living by young adults alters their attitudes, values, plans, and expectations, moving them away from their belief in traditional sex roles. They find their hypothesis strongly supported in young females, while the effects were fewer in studies of young males. Increasing the time away from parents before marrying increased individualism, self-sufficiency, and changes in attitudes about families. In contrast, an earlier study by Williams cited below shows no significant gender differences in sex role attitudes as a result of nonfamily living.
