Assignment Content
This assignment must be completed individually.
In this assignment, you are required to produce an Annotated Bibliography to demonstrate
the quality and depth of your reading and research pertaining to real world applications of
advanced data management.
Annotated Bibliography is "a list of references (i.e. bibliography) which includes a brief
summary of each article reviewed, and often a brief comment about the usefulness of each
one" (CDU Guide to Annotated Bibliography 2021). Producing an annotated bibliography can
help develop these additional skills:
o review the literature of a particular subject
o help you think through various issues related to your chosen subject
o provide a summary of experts’ ideas that can be used for assignments at a later
stage (e.g. Master theses)
This assignment evaluates your achievement of one of the following learning outcomes:
o Evaluate and recommend different database systems for different purposes
(Learning Outcome 3)
o Analyse issues relating to multi-model databases and multi-database architectures
(Learning Outcome 4)
o Critically evaluate the ethical requirements relating to the organisation, management,
storage and stewardship of data (Learning Outcome 5)
By completing this assignment, you will be able to expand your horizon of various advanced
data management solutions in modern business environments.
To begin, from the list above, choose one learning outcome that you want to be evaluated
for (Learning Outcome 3, 4, or 5). There is no need to obtain your instructor's approval on
your selection. However, you need to clearly state the chosen learning outcome on the first
page of the submitted Annotated Bibliography.
You will then write the Annotated Bibliography according to the selected learning outcome
above. Because a learning outcome covers a wide range of issues or topics in data
management, it is recommended that you sufficiently narrow down the focused topic.
Remember: your instructor is looking for an in-depth analysis and discussion.
Once the specific topic is determined, complete the following tasks:

order now

o Explain the motivation for the chosen topic, followed by (only) one main question to
be answered through the Annotated Bibliography.
o Describe in detail the methodology you will use for searching the bibliographic
o Search and compile relevant bibliographic sources. You are required to build your
Annotated Bibliography on exactly 2 sources (these can be academic research
papers, industry white papers, reputable magazine articles, etc). Prioritise reputable
o For each of the selected sources, produce an Annotated Bibliography. This should
include but not limited to the following details:
o the full bibliographic details of the source (you MUST use CDU's Harvard
Referencing style)
o a summary of the source's key ideas or arguments
o your critical analysis or commentary on the source's key ideas that address the main
question previously defined above
This inverted pyramid summarises the above stages:

As a guide, 500 words should be allocated to the Annotated Bibliography of each source.
The maximum words allowed in the final submission is 1500 words.
You may cite additional sources if they support your commentaries on the 2 main sources
Do not plagiarise; you MUST write the annotated bibliography in your own words. To
help, CDU provides a detailed guide on how to summarise, paraphrase, and quote original

A few examples of annotated bibliography can be found here.
The submission must be a single Microsoft Word document (.docx) with an expected length
of 1500 words (not including references). The allowed margin is +/- 50 words. Do not
submit multiple documents.
Including a title page and a table of content in the Annotated Bibliography is optional. They
do not contribute to the total word count.
Submit your work via Learnline's SafeAssign by the latest 11.59pm of the due date.
Email submission will not be accepted, unless specifically requested by the instructor.
