Question and Answer

How do I create an annotated bibliography?

An annotated bibliography is an organized list of sources.

It differs from a standard bibliography in that each reference is followed by an annotation. These annotations should give enough information to help the reader get a sense of the resource that is being examined.

Although annotated bibliographies vary by discipline, they generally have three standard parts:

  • A citation
  • A summary of the article
  • An evaluation of the article.
