An annotated bibliography is an organized list of sources, each of which is followed by a brief note or "annotation."
These annotations do one or more of the following:
describe the content and focus of the book or article
suggest the source's usefulness to your research
evaluate its method, conclusions, or reliability
record your reactions to the source.
--From the University of Wisconsin - Madison's Writing Center
You will need to enter your citation for each source in APA style, developed and maintained by the American Psychological Association.
Please be sure to alphabetize your annotated bibliography by author!
To obtain information about how to construct your own annotated bibliography, please review these excellent descriptions with examples
