What is an annotated bibliography

An annotated bibliography is a list of works with annotations, or brief analytical descriptions, for each item in the list. It can be thought of as an early step in the process of writing a research paper that shows your audience that you have made an effort to learn about the books, articles, and other sources already written on your topic.
