(Notice that in the sample note card, The World Book, Volume 2, page 21, has been shortened to: WB, 2, p.133.) When you are finished writing your paper, you can use the information on your note cards to double-check your bibliography.
When assembling a final bibliography, list your sources (texts, articles, interviews, and so on) in alphabetical order by authors' last names.
If you can't find a specific name for the organization, you can use the title of the article, website, or blog.
A bibliography is the part of an academic paper that makes some students puzzled and confused.
A bibliography is a list of the sources you used to get information for your report.
It is included at the end of your report, on the last page (or last few pages).Note down the full title, author, place of publication, publisher, and date of publication for each source.Also, every time a fact gets recorded on a note card, its source should be noted in the top right corner.Sometimes it is difficult to locate an author for an online source.If you absolutely can't find an author's name, you can use the name of the organization that published the article (for example, "California Department of Health," or "American Humane Society").You could also use different colors for different types of sources or information.Write clearly and neatly so you can read the information long after you have written it. For example, an error in the bibliographic information can cause you to make a mistake on the Works Cited page.Write the author’s last name, followed by a comma and first name, and then the title. Lastly, add publication information, such as the city of publication and the publisher of a book or the journal’s name, volume and issue. The front of the bibliography card should also include the location of the source.For example, to cite a book in MLA Style, use the following format: Author, Name. For library sources, write the name of the library and the call number. This brief location information should help you easily find the source again.Melissa Mc Donald has been writing about education since 2006.Her work has appeared in “Adjunct Nation,” “JCW” and “Honor Cord” e-zine.
