An annotated bibliography presents a comprehensive, yet focused, selection of scholarly sources on a specific topic. The purpose of this annotated bibliography is to identify resources for and to develop a deeper understanding of the tenets of organizational management, supervision, and the professional development of staff. Annotations inform the reader of the material and information provided along with the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited.

Your Assignment will be 3–4 pages in length and will include a 1-paragraph introductory synopsis along with a list of the research resources you used to serve as the preface to the annotated bibliography. Your annotated bibliography will include a list of citations to books, articles, and documents (the bibliography). Each citation will be followed by a brief descriptive and evaluative paragraph (the annotation), which provides a review of the literature on a particular subject. An annotated bibliography is not the same thing as a bibliography or an abstract. An annotation is descriptive and critical whereas as abstract does not include a critical evaluation of the writing or study.

Your annotated bibliography will consist of six references from at least four peer-reviewed journal articles, one credible website, and Chapter 9 of your text, Developing Nonprofit and Human Service Leaders.

Your references will be in alphabetical order with each entry properly APA formatted and each annotation about 1 paragraph (4–10 sentences) in length. The Assignment should be 3–5 pages in length.

In this annotation, you will briefly describe the resource. If available, you could provide a descriptive annotation that evaluates the success or reliability of the book. You might also compare or contrast the source with another source on the topic. Determine if the author has a bias or makes assumptions. List any biases. You could describe the author’s conclusion and whether or not there are significant attachments or appendices such as charts, maps, bibliographies, photographs, documents, tests or questionnaires. You could also explain how this work is useful. You could also compare or contrast this work with another (or others) cited. Is the work, its data, or its view out-of-date, yet a valid historical reference? Describe your reaction to the item. Use technical writing format: not “I” or “my.” You will need four more entries after this one.
