An annotated bibliography is a list of MLA or APA style citations on a certain topic that provide a description of each of the various books, articles, and other sources on the list. The annotated bibliography looks like a Works Cited or References page but includes a summary and/or critical evaluation (i.e. annotation) after each source that is cited. It can be part of a larger research project, or can be a stand-alone report in itself.
