What is an annotated bibliography?


An annotated bibliography is a bibliography of the sources that you are using for your research project that includes a summary or evaluation of each source.  Usually your summary or evaluation will be a short paragraph, but your instructor may give you more detailed guidelines.  You can create annotated bibliographies within Noodlebib, in either APA or MLA format.

Watch this short online tutorial for more details.
