Annotated Bibliographies

What is an Annotated Bibliography?

The annotated bibliography is an alphabetical list of research sources, cited in the proper format (APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.), that provides a description of the source in the form of a paragraph or paragraphs following the citation. NOTE: Your professor will specify how lengthy this description shall be. These paragraphs following the citation are called the annotation. The annotation should fully describe the source and then provide a critical evaluation of the source, considering such factors as the usefulness and reliability of the source; comments about the format and content; and the writer’s views or reactions to the source. Sources often included in an annotated bibliography are: books; periodicals; journals; video and audio; websites; and, databases.
