    What is an annotated bibliography?

    A bibliography is a reading list for a particular subject or a list of works an author consulted when writing their book or paper. An annotated bibliography would be a book list where comments have been added for all or some of the books, e.g. 'good starting point', or 'somewhat outdated but still useful'. Essentially a bibliography with additional notes.

    Sarah's answer is good. I would add two notes. If the annotated bibliography is for an academic paper or is a scholarly tool, then every item gets a note (is annotated), not just some of them. For a college or graduate school assignment, you would describe each work, but not make a recommendation. In a published scholarly annotated bibliography, the note always describes the item, and may also recommend how it can be used. A published scholarly annotated bibliography can be an article in itself, or added to article, or included in a book

    Also, in more informal and practical works, such as business books or articles, an annotated bibliography might be called "suggested reading" or "recommended reading."

    The term "bibliography" traditionally refers to books, and "discography" to records or music, but, these days a bibliography can cite sources on the Internet, as well.

    An annotated bibliography is an alphabetical list of research sources, but unlike a regular bibliography, the annotated bibliography also gives a summary of each source and some assessment of its value or relevance. Depending on your assignment, an annotated bibliography may be one stage in a larger research project, or it may be an independent project standing on its own.
    It briefly identifies how you intend to use the source and why you are using it.
