An annotated bibliography is a list of citations on a related topic with a description (annotation) of each source on the list. It can be part of a larger research project, or can be a stand-alone report in itself.

There are different types of annotations (e.g. summary, evaluative, etc.). Make a note of which type of annotation your instructor is looking for before you start your assignment.

Where can I see an example?

Our Citation guides each contain a template for an annotated bibliography, some further explanation of annotation types, and links to more sources and samples. 

Make sure you know which citation style you need to use first, then click the appropriate link below.
