"Annotated bibliography? That's a mouthful. But the concept is not as difficult as the name suggests. An annotated bibliography is, simply, 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 sources's usefulness to your research; evaluate its method, conclusions, or reliability; record your reactions to the source. You can handle that, right?"
