An annotated bibliography describes to the reader:

  1. The type of research available in a particular area;
  2. The resources you consulted for your research;
  3. The value, content and relevance of a piece to your research. An annotation is meant to be clear and concise.

Below are example of what an annotation might look like. Here is a link to a great guide to creating annotated bibliographies from the University of Toronto.
