Creating Bibliographies and Works Cited style sheets

A Bibliography is a list of all works that you consulted in the course of creating your project. A Works Cited Page is a list of all the works that you actually refer to in your project. Sometimes the list is the same, but usually the Bibliography is longer. The format for both is exactly the same, unless your teacher instructs you otherwise.

Choose the correct format:

  • MLA - usually used with English and Social Studies classes.
  • APA - usually used in Science classes.
