What is a bibliography?

When you write a research paper or essay in college, you are usually required to include a bibliography. A bibliography is a list of the resources (books, articles, videos, etc) that you used while you were researching and writing the paper. You have to reference the exact items so that your professor knows where you got your information.

It's also very important to cite your sources correctly so there is no chance of being accused of plagiarizing.

What is an annotated bibliography?

It's the same as above, a list of resources you used to write your paper, except that you also write a short description of the book, article or video and include it after each citation. EasyBib lets you add an annotation on the confirmation page. Just click the button that says Add Annotation.

Your annotated bibliography will look like this:

Mears, A. (2011). Pricing beauty: The making of a fashion model. Berkeley: University of California Press.
