What is an Annotated Bibliography?

An annotated bibliography is a list of sources (books, articles, presentations, etc.) where each source is followed by a brief summary paragraph describing/evaluating the source. You can use annotated bibliographies to organize your work, provide an evaluation of resources in a certain discipline, and share insights for readers who might be looking to use those resources in their work.
