What is an Annotated Bibliography?

An annotated bibliography is a list of citations of sources (books, articles, websites, etc.) used in conducting research. Each citation is followed by a descriptive summary of the information in the source, an evaluation of the quality of that information, and an evaluation of the relevance to the research being conducted.
