Step 3: Cite Your Sources (Bibliography)
- Step 3: Cite Your Sources (Bibliography)
If you plan to write a report, list all your sources on a BIBLIOGRAPHY page. The list of sources is
sometimes called "Works Cited."
- Use one of these formats (if any item is not known, just skip it and go on to the next one).
- For Books: Author's Last Name, First Name. Title of Book. City:
Publishing company, date.
- Articles: Author's Last Name, First Name. "Title of Article."
Magazine. Publication date: volume: page number.
- Websites: Author's Last Name, First Name. "Title of Article."
Publication date: page. Site owner. Date of visit. <Website Address>
