Answer

An annotated bibliography presents your sources and describes them in some way. Sometimes in annotated bibliographies, you give your opinion about an article, book, or website in addition to a citation for that source. Sometimes you simply describe the source and then give the citation. Your professor will specify the type of annotated bibliography they would like.

The Webster University Writing Center has an excellent page about formatting annotated bibliographies: http://www.webster.edu/academic-resource-center/writingcenter/writing-tips/bibliographies.html.
