What is an annotated bibliography?
An annotated bibliography will have a citation, and an annotation. The annotation is a short paragraph that describes and/or evaluates the citation. On the links below, you can see examples of how an annotated bibliography begins with the citation, followed by the annotation.
An Annotated Bibliography is just a bibliography with a small summary and/or evaluation of each source you list. The annotation can include any of the following information:
- Summary: main arguments or topics covered
- Assessment: if this source was useful or credible
- Reflection: was it helpful, did it fit into your research, did it change your opinion
