As requested in the ISN WG meeting this morning, I am posting a copy of
the outline with the the initial comments on the proposed character of
an annotated bibliography.

I guess that for now the plan is to send comments to this list.  If
the number of comments gets too large, or if there is substantial
disagreement toward using this list for this purpose, we can move the
discussion off to another list (yet to be created).

 o  Requirements for writing an annotated bibliography

    - Short  - less than 10 pages (a goal)
    - Lists  available resources ( esp. documentation)
    - Brief explanation of available resources and references
    - Descriptions should be 1 or 2 lines long at maximum
    - Descriptions should be jargon free

 o Guideline for writing annotated bibliography

   - research available documentation to discover what is available.
     If nothing is available on a particuler topic then

   - ISN WG needs to decide whether a document on that topic is required.


 o Internal references are abbreviated i.e. [FYI 23] OR [Estrada, 1993]


 o Proper bibliographic refernces will be at the back
