What Is an Annotated Bibliography?

An annotated bibliography is a list of citations to books, articles, and documents. Each citation is followed by a brief (usually about 150 words) descriptive and evaluative paragraph (the annotation). The purpose of the paragraph is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited. It is important to review the sources critically, and evaluate their relevance to your paper.
