An annotated bibliography will include the source citation in proper MLA or other citation format. Underneath this citation you should include a brief paragraph on the main points of the source (a summary). Some annotated bibliographies include a critical analysis (evaluation) of the source as well. Follow your instructor's guidelines on what should be included in your annotation.

For information on how to cite properly check out the following LibGuides: MLA Citation and APA Citation.

Visit Purdue's Online Writing Lab (OWL) website for more information on annotated bibliographies.
