An annotated bibliography (sometimes called an annotated bib) is a bibliography with notes, or annotations, below the citations for the complied resources. 

The style and length of a bib often depends on the assignment you are creating it for. In MLA, you treat it like a works cited page where you list out the citations in alphabetical order and below each citation is your annotation. An annotation typically involves explaining why the source is a relevant choice for your bib.
