What is an Annotated Bibliography?

An Annotated Bibliography is a list of sources, formatted in MLA style, where each source is followed by a paragraph that talks about the source. This paragraph is the "annotation" for that article.  

In your annotations, provide a brief description and an evaluation of the source. The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited
