An organized list of citations to books, articles, and documents, each of which is followed by a brief paragraph called the annotation. The annotation should summarize the content and focus of the book, article or web site and evaluate its method, conclusions, or reliability. See also Citing, Bibliography.
A list of sources that gives the publication information and a short description — or annotation — for each source. In some bibliographies the annotation merely describes the content and scope of the source; in others the annotation also evaluates the source's quality and usefulness.
An Annotated Bibliography is a bibliography that gives a summary of the research that has been done. It is still an alphabetical list of research sources. In addition to bibliographic data, an annotated bibliography provides a brief summary or annotation.
