Undergraduate Research: Annotated Bibliographies

What is an annotated bibliography?

"An annotated bibliography is a list of citations to books, articles, and documents. Each citation is followed by a brief (usually about 150 words) descriptive and evaluative paragraph, the annotation. The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited" (Olin Library Reference, Research & Learning Services, Cornell University Library, Ithaca, NY, USA).
