What is an Annotated Bibliography?
- An annotated bibliography is a list of citations in which each citation is followed by a summary of the item.
- The summary is typically restricted to one or two brief paragraphs. It can be either descriptive or evaluative.
- The type of annotation you write is determined by your assignment and guidelines from your instructor.
- Your citations will be written in keeping with the style you choose e.g. APA or MLA etc.
