What's an Annotated Bibliography?

An annotated bibliography (also known as annotated references) is a list of sources or citations in which each source cited is followed by a brief summary and evaluation paragraph. The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance (appropriateness) and quality of the sources (i.e. books, articles, web sites, or documents) cited.

Writing Annotations

  • Summarize the major theme and scope of the work.
  • Provide an evaluation of the authority of the author.
  • Determine the type of audience the resource is intended for.
  • Compare and contrast the material with other resources you have included in your annotated bibliography. 
  • Explain how this resource will be viable to your research topic.
