A bibliography is an alphabetical list of all the sources you use while researching your topic.
These sources may include books, encyclopedias, magazine articles, online databases, Internet sites, and photographs.
The information about each source (the author, title, and so on) must be written in a specific format.
See below for examples of how to create citations for some common sources.
