Citing Sources: What is a bibliography?

Need help citing sources for your research?


A bibliography is a list of all of the sources you have used during the process of your research. It should include:

  • authors' names
  • titles of the works
  • names and locations of the publishers
  • dates the works have been published
  • page numbers (if they are part of multi-source volumes)

    Annotated bibliography

    An annotated bibliography is similar to a bibliography. The bibliographic information is followed by a brief description of the content, quality, and usefulness of the source.
