FORMATTING YOUR PAPER: ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY

INTRODUCTION

Annotated bibliographies may or may not be required by your instructors. Also, if you are assigned to write one, the requirements usually vary depending on the instructor.

Annotated bibliographies are composed of two main things: the bibliography (whole reference) and the annotation (your evaluation in a paragraph form).
