Citing Sources: Writing a Bibliography
Writing a BibliographyA Bibliography is a list of all the books, articles, websites, interviews or movies that you used to create your project or report. It’s important to give credit to the people whose work you used for your report. And it gives you, your teacher and anyone else who reads your report a chance to refer to those sources for more information. There are different ways you can do this and your teacher will tell you which they prefer (if they haven’t, just ask them).
