An annotated bibliography is a list of sources one has used or intends to use for a research project. It differs from a regular bibliography in that an annotated bibliography includes a summary or evaluation of each source. Annotated bibliographies serve as great preparation for research projects because you will have a better idea of what each source on your bibliography is about and how it is relevant to your work.
What is an Annotated Bibliography?
Sources for which you should provide full citations include books, articles, interviews, Internet sources, government documents, software, videotapes, etc. You cite the sources briefly within the text of your paper, and then give the full citation in the “Bibliography” or “Works Cited” section at the end of your paper.

- List citations (e.g. author, title(s), publisher, date, pages) for all the works you used in alphabetical order on a separate page at the end of your paper. This list is called a works cited page, bibliography, source list, or references. How you list your citations depends on which style you use. It is important to be consistent in identifying your sources so that another reader can locate the same material.
- Identify (briefly in parenthesis) in the paper’s text the works you have used. These are called parenthetical or in-text citations.
