The third revised edition (2004) of Annotations, the Alternative Press Center's Guide to the Independent and Critical Press edited by the staff of the Alternative Press Center in collaboration with Marie Jones, M.L.S. is available. Foreword by Robert McChesney.

This companion to the Alternative Press Index has been dubbed by librarian Sandy Berman as "the best single way to make the Library Bill of Rights real: providing access to the myriad opinions, movements, and activities that the orthodox, conventional media either distort or ignore." This expanded third edition of Annotations surveys 385 periodicals of the Left from around the world and provides detailed descriptions of content, history, noted contributors, contact information, guidelines for writers and detailed statistics for each publication.

Entries are accompanied by concise, insightful annotations that fill out the history, ideology, content, and unique features of each of these important periodicals.
