An annotated bibliography is a listing of citations, along with a brief summary and critical overview of each source.

An annotated bibliography answers these questions:

Is it a reliable or current source?

Is there any bias?

Credibility of author or publisher?

What is the correct format for an annotated bibliography?

1. Provide the citation (source).

2. Write a brief summary of the article

Include key points that support the thesis statement

3. Give a critical overview of the source.

State if this source was a scholarly source

Provide examples of why it is a valuable source for others

The OWL @ Purdue has examples of annotated bibliographies.
