An annotated bibliography is a list of citations for the sources (books, articles, websites, films, journals, etc) you are using in your research. Each citation is followed by a descriptive and evaluative paragraph, the annotation. The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited.
