An annotated bibliography is a list of books, articles, Websites, and other sources that you have discovered and used while researching your topic.
Information about each source (author, title, date, etc.) is cited according to a designated format from your instructor such as APA or MLA.
- What makes an annotated bibliography different from just a list of citations?
- After each citation you will write a short summary, description, analysis and/ or evaluation of the cited article, book, etc.
- Your Instructor will provide specific guidelines for writing your annotations.
Please remember that copying and pasting a summary from an abstract is NOT acceptable. This is considered plagiarism.
