An annotated bibliography is a list of citations to books, articles, primary sources, data, and more. Each citation is followed by a brief descriptive and evaluative paragraph (= the annotation). The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited. Basically, an annotated bibliography is a list of recommended readings on a topic, and it can be a good starting point for your research.
