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.
