Annotated Bibliography (Tutorial)

A traditional bibliography is a list of sources consulted in your research. When you write a research paper, you include a bibliography so your readers and instructor can refer to the sources you used to support your ideas.

An annotated bibliography goes a step further and provides a summary of each source or an explanation of that source’s relevance to your research. Often, an annotated bibliography is a stepping stone in a larger research process like a capstone project, literature review, or scientific study.

In this tutorial, we’ll discuss the process of creating summary, evaluation, and reflective annotations, all of which you may be required to submit as part of an assignment.
