Creating Bibliographies<br />A guide to being a Citation <br />Creating Master!<br />6th Grade Library<br />Mrs. Dix<br />
A bibliography is an alphabetized list of all the books, magazines, websites, photos, etc. that you used in your research report. It should be the last page of your report.<br />What’s the big deal? Not saying where you found your information is academically dishonest and is plagiarism. <br />Hard to make? Not at all!<br />What is a Bibliography?<br />
Citations are bits and pieces of data arranged just so to give proper credit to where you found your photos, quotes, research information, etc. <br />Several Citations = One Bibliography<br />What is a Citation?<br />
There are 2 approaches you can take:<br />1. Work on your bibliography throughout the research report – every time you find a new book, quote or bit of information, add the citation.<br />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!<br />Getting Started<br />
2 Great Tools <br />These 2 tools will do all the work for you. We’ll experiment with each one and then you can decide which to use for your science report<br />
1. You forget to use capitalization – this is not a text message! It matters!<br />2. You don’t leave enough time to get this done – rushing this will stress you out!<br />3. You are not careful taking notes and now can’t remember where you found the information! Help!<br />3 Tragic Pitfalls<br />

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 <br />here. <br />Collins, Suzanne. Hunger Games. New York: Scholastic Press, 2008. <br />Indentation<br />
