An annotated bibliography provides summaries and evaluations of sources, while a traditional bibliography is just a list of citations for sources. As long as you keep this key difference in mind, making an annotated bibliography is totally doable. The citation for each source is followed by a description and discussion of the source, called the annotation. These annotations typically explain the strengths and weaknesses of the sources, as well as their relevance to your research project. Always check with your teacher or advisor for precise instructions.
