An annotated bibliography is basically your regular Works Cited/References/Bibliography page but with added comments explaining the value of each source to your research. Your professor may have some specific criteria that you should address, so you should double-check with your assignment guidelines and your instructor to make sure.
Part of your annotation should summarize and assess the source: what is it about? how good of a source is it? was anything left out or not well-addressed?
Part of your annotation should justify why this is a source: how does it help your research? what kind of information does it provide you with that another of your sources does not?
