What is an annotated bibliography?


An annotated bibliography is a list of references with each citation followed by a brief paragraph that summarizes and critically evaluates the source—a book, article, website, report, etc. The list of references (the bibliography) and accompanying paragraphs (the annotations) inform readers about the best research available on a specific topic or theme.

Visit the library website, for more detailed information on annotated bibliographies and examples.
