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
