Q. What exactly is an annotated bibliography? I don't even know where to begin.
You've probably worked on a bibliography before; you might have called it a 'Works Cited' page. A bibliography is just the list of sources you used to research and then write on a topic. An annotated bibliography is simply an expansion of a source list with the annotations offering a short summary of the source and/or evaluating that source's helpfulness or relevance to your project.
Purdue's OWL site has a practical guide to Annotated Bibliographies including examples in the various citation styles.
