A bibliography is a list of resources that you've used for your project.
In an annotated bibliography, you include your own annotations, or notes. For each resource, you may add a brief description, reflecting on what you learned from it and how you have used (or plan to use) it in your work. Your annotation may be a sentence or two, a paragraph, or more. Be sure to ask your instructor for guidelines about how extensive your annotations should be.
An annotated bibliography is presented in the form of a list. Each resource in the list includes a complete citation, plus your annotation.
Annotated bibliographies help you remember what is relevant about each resource, and demonstrate to your professor or other readers what you have found useful or important.
