Bibliography Bibliography Presentation Transcript

  • Creating Bibliographies
  • A bibliography is an alphabetized list of all the books, magazines, websites, photos, etc. that you used in youressay. It should be the last page of your report.
    What’s the big deal? Not saying where you found your information is academically dishonest and is plagiarism.
    Hard to make? Not at all!
    What is a Bibliography?
  • Citations are bits and pieces of data arranged just so to give proper credit to where you found your photos, quotes, research information, etc.
    Several Citations = One Bibliography
    What is a Citation?
  • There are 2 approaches you can take:
    1. Work on your bibliography throughout the essay – every time you find a new book, quote or bit of information, add the citation.
    2. Gather all your notes at the end of the process and enter your data one at a time. Just be sure to save enough time – 8:10am on the day it is due is NOT the time to start!

  • 1. You forget to use capitalization – this is not a text message! It matters!
    2. You don’t leave enough time to get this done – rushing this will stress you out!
    3. You are not careful taking notes and now can’t remember where you found the information! Help!

  • Error Message: Spelling
  • Error Message: ISBN
    Not all ISBN #s will work – don’t get frustrated!
  • All the best tools are unfortunately never 100% perfect. Sometimes the citations will not hold their indentations. You must indent all but the first line. Just like you see here and
