Annotated Bibliography

What is an annotated bibliography?

An annotated bibliography is a list of sources (books, articles, websites, documents, etc.) relating to a topic which includes a note summarizing and/or evaluating the content of each source in addition to the citation. 

Sources should be listed in alphabetical order by the last name of the lead author, according to the rules of the documentation style required by your assignment (e.g. MLA9 or APA7).
