The Usefulness of Annotated Bibliographies

Annotated bibliographies may be useful when organizing your thoughts on a particular topic, summarizing material related to a particular issue, or trying to synthesize disparate pieces of research. Annotated bibliographies also are useful when developing verbal and written skills. Annotated bibliographies often are viewed as an academic tool that does not have application to real-life or to jobs in the field of criminal justice.

This view is not correct. Annotated bibliographies may be used in a wide array of jobs in the criminal justice system, including those in law enforcement, the courts, and corrections.

For this Discussion, consider how using annotated bibliographies might improve verbal and writing skills. Also consider how to use those skills in the field of criminal justice.

With these thoughts in mind:

Post by Day 1 an explanation of how using annotated bibliographies might improve verbal and writing skills. Then explain how the skills obtained from using annotated bibliographies might be beneficial in your current role or in a criminal justice role in which you might be interested in working in the future.
