Annotated Bibliography Instructions The annotated bibliography is an overview of your sources and your research progress. You must include at least 5 sources. You will provide a full works cited entry and answers to the following questions for each source: What type of source is it (primary, secondary, scholarly, etc.)? How do you know? Why do you think it is a credible source? How will you use it in your paper? How does it relate to other sources? Your answers in the annotated bibliography can be brief, but they need to be specific and substantial; make sure you explain them.
