What is an annotated bibliography?

An annotated bibliography is:

a list of all the resources you've used in your assignment. They include:

1. Correct Reference

followed by the annotation

2. A brief summary of the piece of work

3. And an evaluation of the resource

(The annotation is normally about 150 words)

By using your research and critical thinking skills, you can demonstrate an understanding of the most relevant, most useful and most up-to-date sources for any topic.
