A list of sources that contains a summary or assessment of each source is generically called an annotated bibliography. Annotations can range from a short phrase or sentence description to a paragraph which analyzes and critically compares it it to other sources in the list.
See: How to Add or Edit an Annotation
All citation forms in NoodleTools end with an Annotation field so that you can create descriptive or evaluative comments for each citation. When the Annotation field is filled in, the text is added at the end of the citation (indented and styled properly according to the citation style).
A descriptive annotation summarizes the content (e.g., the main idea, content, and plot) and explains its value to your research. When relevant to your research, concisely include the following information:
A critical annotation includes a description (see above), then evaluates the quality of your source related to others and the value of its information to your research.
If you add annotations, you may wish to add the word "Annotated" to your source list title. To change the title, go to Print/Export > Formatting Options, open the "List Title" section, and enter the word in the "Custom header" field.
