What is an Annotated Bibliography?

A bibliography is simply a list of citations of works (books, articles, etc.), typically formatted according to a particular style (e.g., MLA, APA).

An annotated bibliography is a list of citations with brief explanatory and/or evaluative commentary provided for each of those works.

A bibliographic essay is a critical essay in which the writer identifies and evaluates the core works of research within a discipline or sub-discipline.
