Evaluating a Reference

You can write an evaluation for each reference in your project on the Content tab. Evaluations and ratings primarily help you to assess how important a work is to your project.

You can also print a list containing your evaluations to give to students as a recommended reading list. For example, you could provide a list of references with notes such as "good introduction to topic X," "seminal work," "recommended for advanced study on topic Y".

See Creating an Annotated Project Bibliography.
