What does Annotated mean?

An annotated bibliography has a few sentences about what you found in the book, website, magazine, or other resource that you listed.

The annotation might include “This book has a chronology of events.” or “This book explains that the Battle of Killdeer Mountain was one of the events that led to the Battle of the Little Big Horn.”

Annotated Bibliography Example

Calof, Rachel. Rachel Calof’s Story: Jewish Homesteader on the Northern Plains. Bloomington: Indiana University Press, 1995. Rachel Calof was a Jewish immigrant from Russia. She and her husband settled on a farm near Devils Lake in the 1890s. They struggled for many years, but finally succeeded in raising a family on their farm.

Thompson, Era Bell. American Daughter. St. Paul: Minnesota Historical Society Press, 1986. Thompson’s memoir describes growing up in Driscoll, North Dakota in the 1910s and 1920s. Thompson was an African-American girl in a community of mostly white people.
