Citation Styles: Creating a Bibliography

Basics

The bibliography generally comes at the end of your work and is a list of the sources you consulted and/or referenced. Beyond that, bibliographies vary widely depending on the (citation) style you are using. In MLA, it's a "Works Cited" page. In APA, it might be "References."

To determine the citation style (and thus type of bibliography you need), consult:

  1. The assignment
  2. Your professor
  3. The journal in which you are planning to publish

Now that you know, use the Resources by Style page to get the specifics.

What's an Annotated Bibliography?

This is a list of sources with notes or additional information about each one. These notes might include a summary of the source and/or an evaluation of the relevance and usefulness of the source to the larger project or subject area.
