An annotated biibliography is a list of citations to articles, books or other documents. Each citation is followed by a brief (about 200 words) descriptive and evaluative paragraph, the annotation (summary of the source indicating why it is relevant to your research). The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the source cited.* Try these sites for help with annotated bibliographies.
