If I read a paper by Ankeny and it cites a fact from a paper by Zeoli, and I want to refer to the fact in the paper by Zeoli, would I cite Zeoli?
No. You would cite Ankeny. Please read the "Important to know" details below, though.
Your in-text citation would look like this:
Zeoli (2002, as cited in Ankeny, 2013) argued that...
Your reference list would then include the paper by Ankeny. Your reference list would not include the paper by Zeoli, because you didn't actually read that paper.
Important to know:
In this context, Ankeny is considered an indirect or secondary source because it refers to a primary source by Zeoli. Follow the above instructions only in rare circumstances (eg, when you're not able to access the primary source). It's best to take the extra step of reading the primary source and citing it. That way, you'll know you're getting the information exactly right. Talk with your professors about this; they might have additional advice.
An annotated bibliography includes a citation and a written statement or abstract about each work to help potential readers decide if an item is relevant to their interests.
