Citing Your Sources

What is an annotated bibliography?

A bibliography is a list of sources of information.

An annotation is a piece of writing that describes and evaluates a source of information. An annotation may be short or long depending on its purpose. If it merely summarizes the source, it may be confined to a paragraph. If it also evaluates the source, it may be a bit longer.
